Additional Information
This year's race will once again be streamlined and focused solely on the pre-race and race activities. We welcome and encourage your participation and support with team and individual fundraising among your family and friends. Runners will still have the option to wear ankle weights to simulate (in a very small way) what it feels like for people with CP.

Why Walk/Run/Roll with us?
Cerebral Palsy affects 17 million people worldwide. There's NO federal funding for CP research. It's called the forgotten disability. It's the #1 motor disability found in children with no funding. 1 in 303 children are impacted with CP. 1 in 3 children can't walk. 1 in 4 children with CP can't feed themselves. 1 in 4 children with CP can't dress themselves. Some children with CP will NEVER talk.
