The 7 Challenge
This year for Cerebral Palsy Awareness Month (CPAM) we would like to invite all our supporters and families to take part in our brand-new fundraising challenge – The 7 challenge.
What is the relevance of the number 7 you might ask? Well our logo is a tangram arranged in a shape of a heart. A tangram is a Chinese geometric puzzle consisting of a square cut into seven pieces which can be arranged to make various other shapes.
Just like the tangram, we would like you to take the number 7 and think of a challenge you could do to raise vital funds for us this October. This could be….
- Run or walk 7km (or 70!)
- Bake 7 cakes
- Cycle 7 miles
- Swim 70 lengths in the pool
- Read 7 books in 7 days
- Do a 7-hour sponsored silence
These are just some examples – the possibilities are endless! (But must comply with any lockdown guidelines in your area at the time of doing your challenge).
To sign up to The 7 Challenge, click here.
You have a whole month to complete your fundraising challenge and raise as much money as possible. Everyone who takes part in the 7 challenge will receive a certificate of thanks from our fundraising team and if you raise over £70, you will receive a limited-edition Cerebral Palsy Cymru commemorative medal.

When we completed our first baby block of 6 weeks of therapy at Cerebral Palsy Cymru’s therapy centre it was a life-changer. We are truly grateful to have found such help and guidance amongst the darkness, we can now look forward to the future, thanks to Cerebral Palsy Cymru.

I started to Bake for Bobath in 2014 as a fun way of saying thank you to Bobath for the amazing therapy they have given my granddaughter.
Held at home, a small gathering of friends with plenty of cake and coffee plus donations, £97.00, not bad I thought. Still held at home it is an annual event on m…

The early intervention programme, has been such a comfort to us as we were doing something positive from pretty much day one for Sienna. The support and comfort that Cerebral Palsy Cymru provides means that the therapy doesn’t just stop with the child who receives it, the whole family benefits.

Bobath to me means I can give something back to my community. I was a customer at Crwys road and liked the atmosphere that the manager created. The volunteers are happy and the manager is kind-hearted and good with everyone so when I got the opportunity to volunteer my first choice was Bobath.
Each visit to Cerebral Palsy Cymru’s therapy centre in Cardiff meant a 130-mile round trip to get to the centre but it was well worth it. The sessions were a great tool and taught us how to help Ffion and how to continue with her physiotherapy at home.
