The Cerebral Palsy Association of British Columbia launched its unprecedented BC4CP campaign across B.C. on September 15th to raise awareness, donations, and support for the provincial organization that assists thousands of British Columbians of all ages who live with cerebral palsy. This BC4CP.com campaign partnered with Global BC, Corus Radio, Miss 604, Brian Jessel BMW, and Victory Square Technologies who thoughtfully stepped up to assist CPABC during these unprecedented times.
The Cerebral Palsy Association created “BC4CP” an easy to remember acronym and website where the public can learn more about the organization, the people it serves, and the dire need for funding and assistance during this pandemic.
BC4CP donation drive is a simple way for all British Columbians to donate both big and small to help the lives of those persons affected and living with CP. There are over 10,000 persons in BC alone that have Cerebral Palsy. Many of those people rely on the assistance of the BC Cerebral Palsy Association through funded programs, equipment, job training initiatives, therapies, and other financial assistance that has never been greater due to Covid-19.
Executive Director of the Cerebral Palsy Association of BC said “We are delighted to partner with Global Television, Corus Radio network, Brian Jessel BMW, Victory Square Technologies, Miss 604, and our social media influencers to celebrate our members, profile our achievements, raise much needed revenues to assist with our mission during COVID-19, and share the wonderful work our team provides and makes available to over 10,000 people with CP across British Columbia.”
