For the 17 million people around the world living with Cerebral Palsy, the challenge of getting from place to place is something that at times can be simply exhausting. And for some, the thrill of running is something they may never come to know.
That, quite simply, is why Team Footsteps of WNY exists, and why we will be running the Buffalo Marathon again on Sunday May 24, 2020- to run for those who cannot.
While marathon training takes commitment, it does not compare to the daily challenges faced by our friends with Cerebral Palsy. Team Footsteps is stepping up so that others may someday be able to step forward and is running in support of those living with Cerebral Palsy by raising funds and awareness for Footsteps of WNY, Inc.
Since 2013, the 64 runners of Team Footsteps have raised over $50,000, which has provided over 300 weeks of therapy and $25,000 in assistive technology for those in need.
There are race distances of 5k, 13.1, 26.2, during marathon weekend this year. Our team is stepping up again in 2020 so that others in Western New York living with Cerebral Palsy may someday be able to step forward. Will you run with us?
If you aren't a runner, but would like to be a race day volunteer for the on behalf of Team Footsteps, please let us know. For your time and energy, the Buffalo Marathon will make a donation to our cause on your behalf..
