Steptember – raising money for Cerebral Palsy

BLACKBURN CLINIC is raising money for CEREBRAL PALSY.  Many of our doctors, nurses, administration and reception staff are attempting to walk 10,000 STEPS every day for the month of September. We have 35 staff members participating within 12 teams.

Cerebral Palsy (CP) is a physical disability that affects movement and posture.  It is a permanent life-long condition, but generally does not worsen over time. It is due to damage to the developing brain either during pregnancy or shortly after birth.  Cerebral palsy affects people in different ways and can affect body movement, muscle control, muscle coordination, muscle tone, reflex, posture and balance.  Did you know, Cerebral Palsy is the most common physical disability in childhood?
