March is Cerebral Palsy Awareness Month.
Cerebral Palsy Sport annually recognise the month by launching new fundraising initiatives and sharing information via our platforms. #CPCan has become the recognised hashtag of Cerebral Palsy Sport during March, linking our programmes, partners and participants together.
March is an opportunity to celebrate, educate and help share some of the work that we do here at Cerebral Palsy Sport, and particularly the impact we have on lives of those with cerebral palsy and their families.
Cerebral Palsy affects many people and is more common than some people realise. Around 2-2.5 in every 1000 children in the UK are born with cerebral palsy and there is an estimated 30,000 children with cerebral palsy in the UK.
Every year we give hundreds of children, young people and adults with cerebral palsy the chance to enjoy playing sport. All this is only achievable because of the kindness and generosity of people who support our charity through fundraising and volunteering.
We share infographs, information and case studies on our website and social media platforms, specifically using the hashtag #CPCan which Cerebral Palsy Sport created to promote a positive message.
