Cerebral palsy refers to a group of disorders affecting a person’s ability to move. It is a permanent life-long condition due to damage to the developing brain either during pregnancy or shortly after birth.
It is the most common physical disability in childhood. With some of our members impacted by it, we wanted to do our bit to help.
Last month we participated in Steptember and took over 1.16 million steps in the name of cerebral palsy.
On 4 October 2018, we stepped it up with a morning tea fundraiser for members of Nexus Mutual and the Sale community.
Our staff made caramel slices, quiches, cupcakes and other delectable treats, and we hired a coffee cart to supply barista-made coffee.
We raised over $340 for the Cerebral Palsy Alliance.
Thank you to everyone who contributed and joined us in supporting the cause!
