Kyle Miller: Golfer, Coach, Inspiration & The New CPAA Spokesman!

The Cerebral Palsy Association in Alberta is pleased to announce that Kyle Miller will be our new Spokesman. Kyle is a passionate advocate for individuals with cerebral palsy and other disabilities and he demonstrates a deep commitment to the CPAA’s mission’s to make a difference by enriching and supporting the lives of these individuals.

“As far as I can remember it’s been my goal to become a professional golfer and coach elite players and an even bigger desire to help those with “disabilities”. The main reason I have chased my goals and aspirations is to make history in the sport of golf so that more people could follow in my footsteps…not necessarily as a golfer but because too many people are told only what they can’t do and this is where I come into play!  I’ve chosen to partner with the Cerebral Palsy Association in Alberta because this organization exemplifies all the same values and goals that I have.  The incredible support they provide for individuals with disabilities is incredible, and I’m proud to be a part of it.”
