Imagine a world where scientific research unlocks the secrets of what causes the different types of Cerebral Palsy, discovers how to prevent it, and identifies new treatments and eventually a cure for this type of brain injury. Your voice and your support will directly affect how quickly scientists and medical professionals can make progress towards this goal. You have the power to make this kind of difference and we need your help.
One way to help is to Donate
You can accelerate efforts to find new Cerebral Palsy treatments and a cure by making a financial contribution. Reaching for the Stars is a 501(c)(3) public charity which means contributions are 100% tax deductible and support research, awareness, education and advocacy initiatives. As a volunteer organization, 95 cents of every dollar donated, goes directly to research, education and advocacy programs improving children’s lives impacted by Cerebral Palsy.
Speak Up. Be an Advocate.
Did you know that there have been no U.S. national research studies into the causes and effects of CP on a national, long term basis, despite the fact that Cerebral Palsy is the most common motor disability in childhood affecting more than 800,000 Americans, and over approximately 17,000,000 people worldwide? We owe it to these children to change that equation. Now is the time.
Host a Community Event or Fundraiser
We are extremely grateful for the efforts of many individuals and organizations who coordinate fundraising events and choose to donate the proceeds to Reaching For The Stars. This hard work and commitment makes an enormous difference as we work to find new treatments for Cerebral Palsy and raise awareness.
