    Dear [name],

    I hope you’re doing well! I’m reaching out because I’m doing something that’s important to me, and I’m hoping you can help.

    This September, I’ll be taking the equivalent of 10,000 steps every day to support the Cerebral Palsy Alliance Research Foundation (CPARF). They fund groundbreaking research to help treat and manage cerebral palsy (CP), to discover ways to prevent it, and to ultimately find a cure.

    18 million people have CP worldwide and I’m proud to be doing what I can to help them. I hope you’ll join me and support this worthy cause. It’s no small thing to say you’ve helped change lives.

    You can make a one-time donation, just click here. ( (Donations are charitable contributions and CPARF will send you a tax receipt.)

    Every single gift is appreciated.

    With gratitude,



    Thanks for supporting me this STEPtember. Your donation means a lot to me because it’s going to the Cerebral Palsy Alliance Research Foundation — an organization that’s funding groundbreaking research into treating, preventing, and finding a cure for cerebral palsy.

    And it means a lot to the 18 million people around the world who have cerebral palsy. Take a look at some of the faces of CP and learn more about the foundation’s life-changing work here:

    Thanks again for stepping up for me.
