March is National Cerebral Palsy Awareness Month.  As you know, our son Michael has CP and requires a lot of equipment to do day to day activities.  Cerebral Palsy is the most common motor disability in children, in fact, about 1 in 345 children has been identified with CP.  Motor impairment severity differs from kid to kid, however: the cost for adaptive equipment is expensive yet necessary for them to gain their independence. Unfortunately, not every family can afford the equipment and insurance doesn't always deem things "medically necessary."  We want to help raise awareness, encourage inclusion AND help raise money for those with Cerebral Palsy (and any other motor disability) who need help paying for life-changing equipment ranging from wheelchairs, gait trainers, educational tools to bath chairs. With your participation and donations from past two year’s event, we have donated thousands of dollars to is an organization in Maryland that helps families with these needs find the equipment that the need so that kids with motor disabilities can have what they need to be successful.  Please consider joining us in a 5K Walk-Or-Roll-A-Thon on March 24th at 3:30pm*, do a run/walk on your own whenever you can during the month of March OR donate and help some families out!!!


*For the in-person event: we will meet in the EHS parking lot in front of the flag pole and walk/run/roll the rails to trails to about TCEC then back again.
