By Julie Brocklehurst 

Being so highly involved with the Cerebral Palsy Association here in Newfoundland, I enjoy making connections with other CP Associations, whether they be in another province or another country. We are all fighting for the same things. We are all striving for the same reality: a life without limits for people with disabilities. I recently connected with United Cerebral Palsy of Rhode Island, and learned about a wonderful program they offer that is making a difference and enhancing the lives of many individuals in their community.


Be sure to spend some time checking out Julie's Blog and stories in "Tulip Tales" and then be sure to visit our Etsy Shop for our August Sale on all items.

Steptember (formerly the World CP Challenge)


Join us for this exciting, 4-week team activity that provides participants with the opportunity to improve their health, fitness and well-being, all while raising awareness and much needed funds for people with Cerebral Palsy and other disabilities.  

The Challenge - get a team of four people together!  Each team member challenges themselves to take 10,000 steps per day, tracking their daily step count (by wearing a pedometer we will provide you with) and recording their total steps on their personalized Steptember webpage.  Participants don't have to just walk - the can run, cycle, swim or even go bowling to reach the daily step count.

Introducing the first novel of UCPRI Board Member and client Maureen Gaynor:
 

Always A Place

 
Cerebral palsy has claimed Kate's body but not her mind. Kate is sharp, and wants all that she can get from life. She has a husband, a best friend and a devoted brother; all of whom would take a bullet for her. But when husband and wife set out for a new life in Syracuse, they encounter uncharted waters that put their marriage to the test.
