Every 20 hours, an Australian child is diagnosed with cerebral palsy - a lifelong condition with no known cure.  

With the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, it is now more important than ever to ensure people living with CP and other disabilities remain connected and live an inclusive life.  

At the start of the pandemic, we moved to contactless services and providing therapy remotely via our technology platform, Cerebral Palsy Alliance (CPA) Telepractice.  

But families are missing out.  

Without Telepractice to access therapy, people with CP and other disabilities are at risk of additional lifelong complications and needless pain. They urgently need your help. 

Our new virtual fundraising challenge, Take20, is a way to challenge yourself, get creative and help connect people living with CP to important therapies and services from the safety of their own home.  

Getting involved is super simple!  

  1. Choose your challenge – reading, running, cycling or anything you like! 
  2. Register your challenge – this will create your personal fundraising page (and hold you accountable) 
  3. Share the news! - challenge your friends, ask for donations and be proud that you’re changing lives.

Fundraising ideas 

Our dedicated team will be happy to assist you with your fundraising ideas. 

  • Invite your friends to a virtual ‘Take20 Book Club’. Ask them for a $20 donation per book you read and commit to reading at 20 min per day over 20 days.  
  • Start an exercise challenge! Commit to cycling 20 minutes per day and challenge your friends, and track your distances – furthest wins! Take the challenge further by donating the money you’d spend in chocolate (!), coffee (!!) or wine (!!!) for 20 days 
  • Try the ultimate test of endurance and watch 20 minutes of Nicolas Cage movies for 20 days. 

You can do SO much more! We can’t wait to hear your ideas.  

Every dollar you raise will help people living with CP and other disabilities stay safe, connected, and access vital therapies and services.
