The Cerebral Palsy Association in Alberta puts on several events each year, allowing us to connect with our community and celebrate the accomplishments of our organization, as well as the successes of our members. Fundraising at our events allows us to continue to offer programs and services and enable people with cerebral palsy and other disabilities to live a Life without Limits.
We encourage everyone to get involved with our annual events where you can enjoy the company of other members, supporters, and volunteers. Thank you to the individuals, groups and companies who contribute financially and donate items to our events, and to our volunteers who donate their time and expertise in making our events successful.

WORLD CP DAY
LIFE WITHOUT LIMITS GALA
The Cerebral Palsy Association in Alberta held its first gala in 2007 in an effort to raise funds and awareness for individuals with cerebral palsy and other disabilities. With the success of the gala it quickly became an annual event. Each year our guests look forward to a new and exciting theme, and can count on great entertainment and spectacular chef inspired menus prepared by local artisan chefs. The Gala never disappoints, and has successfully raised much needed funds for the CPAA’s programs and services. This fundraiser would not be possible without our countless volunteers, supporters, donors and sponsors.
LIFE WITHOUT LIMITS CHALLENGE
No times, no pressure, no sweat – just some easy moves and lots of laughs. Over 500 participants of all ages and abilities take part annually, running, walking and wheeling on a 5Km route in Calgary and Edmonton, or a more challenging Kevin Kruise 20Km cycle route (Calgary only) or take on one of our New Challenges… the Wheelchair Challenge or the Virtual Challenge!
POKER FOR A CAUSE
Put on your poker face and hold your cards tight! Each year the CPAA hosts poker tournaments in both Calgary and Edmonton in March and October/November. The funds raised from our Poker for a Cause tournaments support our vital programs and services, helping us create a Life Without Limits for individuals with Cerebral Palsy and other disabilities. This fundraiser would not be possible without our countless volunteers, supporters, donors and sponsors.
GOLF WITHOUT LIMITS
The CPAA Golf Without Limits tournament takes place each June to raise funds for individuals living with Cerebral Palsy and other disabilities. The success of this tournament would not be possible without the support we receive from our amazing volunteers, donors, and sponsors.
GIFTS FROM THE HEART
Did you know that it can be up to 4x more costly to raise a special needs child? There is a tremendous cost to raising a child with a disability – special equipment, clothing and necessities come with a big price tag. For the past 20 years the CPAA has provided gifts for children with special needs at Christmas time so they can enjoy the spirit of the season. Gifts are specifically chosen depending on the child’s disability. For many children, this is the only gift they will receive and we try to make it special for them. The CPAA relies on the generosity of the community to help us brighten their holidays and bring smiles to their faces.
