The World Cerebral Palsy Challenge is an exciting four week team activity that runs for the month of September.
The Challenge requires participants to form a team of four . Each Team Member will then track their daily step count (by wearing a pedometer) or other fitness activity and record this on their personalized World Cerebral Palsy Challenge website.
Participants don’t just have to walk – you can run, cycle, swim or even bowl to increase your daily steps. There are over 40 activities to choose from including activities suitable for people with a disability.
Each team selects a division to enter based on the fitness level of Team Members. There are three divisions to choose from, each in the form of a different 'virtual mountain' that the team needs to climb by the end of the Challenge.
Each day, when you enter your steps your team will progress up your virtual mountain. The aim of the Challenge is for each team to reach the top by the end of the four weeks.
Participants will be encouraged to fundraise from the time they register until the end of the event with all proceeds going towards helping people with cerebral palsy and other disabilities.
Once a team is registered, each participant will be sent a ‘Challenge Kit’ which will include two pedometers.
