I have the great privilege of continuing to serve on the Board of Directors of the Cerebral Palsy Association of BC in the capacity of Vice President of the Board, for the 2013-2015 term.
Over the past year the Association succeeded in raising awareness of the important issues that affect the lives of people with cerebral palsy and their families, and providing advocacy assistance, support and grants to the people who need it most. Most recently, we were proud to have provided scholarships for post-secondary education to 10 students with cerebral palsy. We also provided grants to 12 children with cerebral palsy to attend summer camp. In addition, we recently launched our dance and yoga programs for children with cerebral palsy, as well as our popular Community Connection Series.
For the coming year we have a number of ambitious goals. We plan to improve our outreach, continue to raise awareness of cerebral palsy and add to the services and support we provide. Our goal is to reach out far and wide to make meaningful contributions to the lives of as many people with cerebral palsy as possible.
If you have any suggestions on how we could support someone you know living with cerebral palsy, we would love to hear from you! If you would like to contribute to our organization, either by making a donation or volunteering please contact us. Check out our website at www.bccerebralpalsy.com
