Transcript of Cerebral Palsy

Cerebral Palsy Association
Of British Columbia By Samantha Van Emmerik, Charlie Manship,
Kayla Ford and Eric Longman With $5000 the charity would love to introduce "Dance without limits to B.C "The Cerebral Palsy Association
of BC was started in 1954
by a group of parents who wanted to assist the children living with CP to reach their maximum potential within society." Cerebral Palsy (CP) is a condition that affects about 1 in every 500 individuals living in British Columbia

The term Cerebral Palsy is used to describe disorders that affect muscle coordination and body movement.

Cerebral = "of the brain"
Palsy = "lack of muscle control"

The development of our brain starts in early pregnancy and continues until we are about three years old. Damage to the brain that occurs within this time may result in CP. The resulting damage interferes with messages from the brain to the body, and from the body to the brain . The Cerebral Palsy
Association Of British
Columbia: Youth Philanthropy

Raising money for this charity is very important. more research needs to be put into studying CP to help incredible little children like Georgia World Cp Challenge
World Cp challenge is a 4week team challenge. teams are made up of 4 people, 2 team leaders and 3 members, cost is $25 for an adult and $10 for a child. participants wear their pedometers everyday for the 4 weeks and enter steps into their homepage on the challange website. they can also carry out over 40 other physical activities which they can convert into steps on the website. as participants enter their steps onto the website their team will be moved up a virtual mountain and aim to reach the top by the end of the 4 weeks. fundraising isnt compulsory but will make a huge difference to the lives of people with cerebral palsy. this improves health and well being, increase movtivaton, be more productive, endcourage team work, support the local community. The Cerebral Palsy association of British Columbia is just a small office in downtown Vancouver. The office is a great source for information about Cerebral Palsy. They have pamphlets, books and videos which they distribute to the public for awareness. The information is mostly for parents who's children have cerebral palsy.They go to learn more about cp and what they can do to help their child feel equal within society. Usually after a visit to the office parents are less overwhelmed and they have a better outlook on their child's future and what lies ahead for them. They see their child can live similarly to everyone amongst them.
