In 2016, we partnered with THE CEREBRAL PALSY CENTRE located in Surulere, Lagos. The Centre provides support for families who are struggling to understand the condition of their children. They are also taught how best to care for their children. Sadly, there are also many children with Cerebral Palsy who are literally abandoned on the doorsteps of the Centre. Not wanting to turn any child away, the Cerebral Palsy Centre takes on these children to ensure that all children are given the best care.
The event had over 100 participants including Nigeria’s fastest man; Seye Ogunlewe and Temple Management Company (TMC) a renowned talent management company. The record scale of participation at the charity walk successfully helped us in joining the Cerebral Palsy Centre to raise awareness about the much misunderstood condition of Cerebral Palsy. We drove home the message to our fellow Lagosians and Nigeria at large that, CEREBRAL PALSY IS NOT A DEATH SENTENCE AND WITH PROPER CARE AND SUPPORT, CHILDREN CAN LIVE HAPPY LIVES.
As an independently funded charity, all donations raised at the event were greatly appreciated and well received by the Centre. It will enable them to continue providing the care and support for children suffering from the incurable condition of Cerebral Palsy.
We aim to continue our legacy of giving back to the society. We will always strive to IMPROVE LIVES WITH EVERY STEP.
