CP 5k 2021

Hi everyone. As most of you know, I attended the Cerebral Palsy center in Roosevelt for Pre-k and Kindergarten. Although I don’t have CP, I have a bunch of other disabilities that were and still are a struggle for me. Back then there wasn’t many places or programs for people with any type of disabilities. So that’s where my parents enrolled me.

I’ve always said and still feel that the CP Center was instrumental in my early development. The daily physical, occupational and speech therapy were so beneficial. All the accesible things from the bathrooms to the pool out back with a ramp during summer camps I attended. The playground that had hand bikes and other accesible activities. That same playground got a total renovation back in 2017 by the donations from this same 5k.

Everything seemed so inclusive there and back then. None of us felt any different. They created an environment that was just so loving for all of us. At least that’s how I felt. I hadn’t really experienced much outside of there yet. My first exposures to music, sports, art, and everything educational was provided there. It was there that I flourished enough for them to mainstream me into Freeport public schools. Which put me on the path to being able to achieve everything else that I set myself out to achieve in my future.

I have so much more to say about the CP Center and all they did for me and countless other children and adults who have attended there. A lot of its resources are privately funded and through fundraising events like this. They basically lost a whole year of fundraising during Covid. I’ll end here for now by just asking for anyone to try to give whatever you can to this amazing place. I know there’s many charity’s out there and many that are near and dear to our hearts. This is obviously the one that means the most to me for many reasons. Let’s try to ensure it stays open and properly staffed to provide everything it has over the decades to the community.

Thanks everyone for all your support for me and the CP Center over the years. 

Run, walk, roll or stroll and raise funds for the heroes who continue to help children and adults with disabilities through the Pandemic

The CP Nassau 5K Walk/Run/Roll/Stroll will take place on Saturday, November 20, 2021, in Eisenhower Park, East Meadow, NY. Eisenhower Park is a 930-acre oasis of open space and recreation in the heart of Nassau County. The Park is one of the largest public spaces in the New York metropolitan area – even larger than Central Park.

Funds from the 2021 CP Nassau 5K event will go towards health and wellness efforts to benefit the staff and the children and adults who participate in programs at CP Nassau. All of them played a hero’s role in getting through the challenges together!

We ask that you agree to raise $200 as a participant.  Ask friends, neighbors, and co-workers to support your efforts and you will be pleasantly surprised at how quickly you will raise those funds!

I love the CP center and feel I owe a lot to them in my early years. Over the years I’ve stayed in touch and whether it was donating my wheelchairs to them as I outgrew them, volunteering there or participating and fundraising for this 5k, I do what I can to support them cause they supported me. But also so many countless others.
