Did you know, Cerebral Palsy is the most common physical disability in childhood?

During the month of September more than 30 employees across INTREC participated in the Steptember challenge. Steptember is a movement that raises awareness for those suffering from Cerebral Palsy (CP), a life-long physical disability due to damage of the developing brain that affects people in many different ways, from general movements and muscle control to coordination, balance and posture.

Motivated by such a heartwarming cause, our INTREC participants were required to take 10,000 steps a day for 28 days straight while asking for sponsors to raise vital funds along the way. What many didn’t realise was the extent it took during the work week to clock up 10,000 steps, pushing everyone to be more active during the day and take lunch time and after dinner strolls. Every dollar raised will provide equipment, therapy and services to children and adults living with CP along with research into a prevention and possibly one day a cure.
