BC Will Light Up GREEN
World Cerebral Palsy Day is a global movement of people with cerebral palsy and their families, and the organizations that support them, in more than 60 countries. The day is an opportunity to celebrate, raise awareness and take action to ensure that people with CP have the same rights, access and opportunity as anyone else in their communities.
BC will light up green to celebrate World CP Day. Some of BC’s most prominent landmarks (Canada Place, BC Place, Science World, etc) will light up green to promote CP awareness. Make sure to snap a picture and share it on social media!
About Cerebral Palsy
Cerebral palsy (CP) affects body movement and muscle coordination, is not hereditary nor contagious but is a life-long condition. Over 10,000 people in BC live with Cerebral Palsy. It is the number one physical disability in children, and while many adults with CP work and lead productive lives many are bound by therapy and equipment expenses that can be debilitating.
CP is a complex disability:
- 1 in 4 children with CP cannot talk
- 1 in 4 children cannot walk
- 1 in 2 have an intellectual disability
- 1 in 4 have epilepsy.
- CP is a lifelong disability and there is no known cure.

What is World Cerebral Palsy Day?
World Cerebral Palsy Day [WCPD] is a social movement of, by and for the CP community. World CP Day encourages action taken locally to help realize the global movement for change.
To ensure that individuals with Cerebral Palsy have the same rights, access and opportunities as anyone else.
Why do we want to raise awareness?
Cerebral palsy (CP) is the most common physical disability in childhood and is also one of the least understood. Here are reasons why we need to raise awareness:
- Doctors are reluctant to make a diagnosis
- Many people receive ineffective therapies
- Many individuals and their families lack access to basic information and support
- Little money is being spent on research
- Many societies keep people with CP out of sight, out of mind and out of options
Let’s take action
On World CP Day, we will combine our resources, energy and knowledge to share our stories and ideas.
We will tell the world … I AM HERE … WE ARE HERE
