All funds raised by participants are directed towards life-changing scientific advances for people with cerebral palsy and technology to make everyday life easier for people with CP and co-occurring disabilities. Some examples include chronic pain research, technology that unlocks movement for CP, and a device to make grasping and holding things – from a toothbrush to a pen to a smartphone – easier for people with CP and other disabilities.
