Unfortunately, Cerebral Palsy Alliance has made the difficult decision to take a break with The Extra Mile. It’s been two incredible years, and we’re beyond grateful for your unwavering support and fundraising passion.

As a supporter, you want your fundraising to make the biggest possible impact for people with cerebral palsy, right? So do we. And sometimes this means carefully weighing up the downhill cruises against the uphill climbs of our fundraising challenges. Unfortunately, this is one of those times where the climbs are just too high, and it makes sense to take a break.

Thank you from everyone at Cerebral Palsy Alliance and on behalf of adults and kids with cerebral palsy for your invaluable support of The Extra Mile. Together, you’ve raised over $530,000 for critical cerebral palsy research, and cycled more than 1,000,000 km – that’s enough to travel more than 25 times around the earth! You’ve truly made life-changing impact. Thank you!

And don’t worry, The Extra Mile might be taking a break, but you can still cycle for cerebral palsy. Here are two fun fundraising challenges this year which you can cycle whilst raising funds:

You've helped kids like Kaiden

Just hours after Kaiden was born, he was diagnosed with a brain bleed and had to undergo risky brain surgery.

A few months later, Kaiden was diagnosed with cerebral palsy. His parents turned to CPA for help, and with the support of incredible and generous fundraisers like you, Kaiden was able to access life-changing early intervention therapies, when he needed it most.

Now, at six years old, Kaiden is empowered to lead a full and independent life and engage fully with the world around him.
