Summary
Find out the dates, history and traditions of National Cerebral Palsy Awareness Day.

National Cerebral Palsy Awareness Day is observed every year on March 25th. It began in 2006 by Reaching for the Stars (RFTS), a non-profit educational advocacy group run by parent volunteers.

While the entire month of March is considered National Cerebral Palsy Awareness Month, March 25th is a nationally recognized holiday intended to focus support for those affected by this condition. This day serves to provide those in the community with a platform to come forward and share their stories while supporting one another.

Cerebral palsy is the name for a group of lifelong conditions that affect movement and coordination. It's caused by a problem with the brain that develops before, during, or soon after birth.
