During lockdown, I’m making my MOVES count for CP research!

This month, to stave off boredom, inactivity, and to lose that Covid-19 pounds, I’m taking part in the Move4CP challenge, and raising funds and awareness for cerebral palsy research while I do it!

For those who don't know, cerebral palsy (CP) is the most common childhood-onset physical disability in the world and is strongly correlated with premature birth - something I care very deeply and personally about.

Here in the US, one in 323 babies is diagnosed with CP each year, and estimated related lifetime costs exceed $1.2 million per person.

Your generosity will accelerate groundbreaking research to treat, prevent, and ultimately cure this underfunded condition. There are several vital research programs, including:

  • Training medical teams to detect cerebral palsy in babies as young as three months old, so they can get timely physical therapy.
  • Supporting research into new chronic pain treatments and solutions for millions of people with CP

Please help me reach my giving goal. Together, we change lives and move CP research forward.

Thanks so much for your support!
