Cerebral Palsy Education Centre
CPEC are once again proud to be associated with the 2013 Medibank Melbourne Marathon.
We are hoping that this year many of you will choose to fundraise for the Cerebral Palsy Education Centre which runs specialised therapy based programs for babies and children with Cerebral Palsy.
We have been an official charity of the event for the past six years and in that time the generous Melbourne Marathon participants have helped enormously to keep our Centre running. The government only covers 26% of our operating costs so your support is vital. We help hundreds of families around Australia each year and our top three therapists are acknowledged nationally as experts in their field.
You can help our children by setting up a fundraising page here.
This year anyone who fundraises for CPEC can go into the draw to win a ticket to the sold out 2014 NEW YORK MARATHON. Click here to find out more.
We have lots of other incentives too – a chance to enter the Paris Marathon or the Great Wall Marathon, and you can get your registration fee refunded as well as a voucher for $105 off a new pair of shoes at Active Feet. Click Here to find out more.
Please help our gorgeous kids like Lachie in the photo here to live their lives to their full potential. Thank you from all the CPEC kids and their families.
