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 Cerebral Palsy Day is a global movement of people with cerebral palsy and their families, and the organizations that support them, in more than 60 countries. The day is an opportunity to celebrate, raise awareness and take action to ensure that people with CP have the same rights, access and opportunity as anyone else in their communities.


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.

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 or 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!
