Each year, we are proud to support World Cerebral Palsy Day.

Whether you’re a person with cerebral palsy or a friend, family member or colleague of someone living with cerebral palsy, there is something everyone can get involved in!

October 6 marks World Cerebral Palsy Day. We ask people around the world to come together to celebrate and support those living with CP, embrace diversity and to help create a more accessible future for everyone.

As cerebral palsy affects more than 17 million people worldwide, there are millions of reasons to make your voice heard on October 6. Join the movement this World Cerebral Palsy Day to help create awareness and action around cerebral palsy.

Every person living with cerebral palsy is a reason to strive for change.
