CPA's 2022 20/twenty Challenge a roaring success
Posted on Tue 17 May 2022

The 18th edition of the 20/twenty Challenge, Cerebral Palsy Alliance’s annual team fundraising event, was a massive success, with people with cerebral palsy, volunteers, allies and fundraisers coming together to raise vital funds for CPA.

More than 250 enthusiastic participants swam, walked, ran and kayaked their way from Manly’s Shelly Beach and the Mosman foreshore to the finish line at Clontarf Beach in Sydney’s Northern Beaches on Sunday 15 May.

The competitors had a fantastic morning, and with amazing weather, coverage on Nine News and nearly 40 teams taking part, it was another brilliant edition of the 20/twenty Challenge.

Fresh from his heroics at the 2022 Beijing Winter Paralympics, STEPtember ambassador Ben Tudhope was on hand to blow the sounding horn alongside Lara Wisemantel, much loved CPA client and challenge participant in ‘Team Lala’.

Thanks to the brilliant efforts of our teams, almost $400,000 and counting has been raised for CPA!

Funds from the challenge go directly towards purchasing equipment such as standing frames, specialised wheelchairs and other assistive tech for kids with cerebral palsy, enabling them to live happy and inclusive lives.

In its long history, the 20/twenty Challenge has raised more than $8.5 million, making an impact on the lives of over 3,500 children with cerebral palsy.

A special shout-out to the 'Cubs' and 'Kittens' teams made up of brilliant young para-athletes from the CPA Sports program, as well as our brilliant volunteers and fundraisers - thank you for coming together for a fantastic and impactful event!
