I’m making my MOVES count for CP research!
I’m taking part in the Move4CP challenge to raise funds and awareness for cerebral palsy research.
I was diagnosed with CP when I was 18 months old. Cerebral palsy (CP) is the most common lifelong physical disability in the world.
And even though living with CP can make exercise challenging, it’s still just as important to get moving and stay healthy. Over the next 21 days, my goal will be to do at least 30 minutes of exercise every day. To keep up with my progress, follow my Instagram page @1megan1exosym ! And if you would like to donate, all funds will go towards the Cerebral Palsy Alliance Research Foundation.
One in 323 babies is diagnosed with CP each year, and estimated related lifetime costs exceed $1.2 million per person.
Your generous support will accelerate groundbreaking research to change what's possible for 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!

Day 10 - hit my 10-hour movement goal!!Saturday 19th Jun You know coming into this challenge, I thought it would be a real uphill battle to get myself to move for 30 minutes a day. And yes, some days I've had to drag myself out the door... BUT I truly underestimated the power of having a team cheering you on! Knowing each of you are rooting for me has definitely given me a boost.
Day 8 - booksellers unite, SMASHING goals, making new ones!Thursday 17th Jun WOW. Never underestimate the power of friends and an army of indie booksellers. As many of you know, I work at Eagle Harbor Books and when word got out that I was doing this fundraiser, they came in full force!
Thank you all - Day 5 down, 16 more to go!Monday 14th Jun You all are amazing! Here I was thinking I was just going to do this little challenge by myself, and now I have a whole team behind me. I'm so thankful for your support, both through donations and cheering me on.
