Mya Dances without Limits Thanks to your Donations!

myaDonations help fund programs like our Dance without Limits. It combines physical therapy with the opportunity for participants to experience something new and boost their confidence and self-esteem.

Mya is one of the participants in this program, and her mom loves how Dance without Limits allows Mya to be herself and learn new things.

Mya’s mom has noticed there have been some slight physical changes since joining the program as well:

“Mya has stiff hips and tends to lock her knees when she runs. We’ve noticed that during her dance recital song, Mya is attempting to bend her knees and stomp like her friends and mentors. Though it may look like Mya is not paying attention and is off doing her own thing, she is watching what everyone is doing and absorbing everything.”

Thanks for Stepping it Up!

Thank you to everyone who was able to participate in Steptember this year!

We had over 1,000 steppers who took over 235 million steps, all while raising awareness and funds for cerebral palsy and other disabilities. That’s nearly 180,000 kms!! Across Canada we’ve raised over $100,000 for children and adults with cerebral palsy and other disabilities – thank you to everyone who donated to Steptember – your donations are what kept everyone stepping, wheeling and dancing. Here are a few photos of our Steptember participants getting their steps in.

Here in Alberta we’ve raised over $50,000 – help us surpass the $50,000 mark by making a small donation to one of our ambassadors. They have until November 1 to collect donations and would love a little extra support towards reaching their goals!
