Go Green for CP

 


Cerebral palsy (CP) is the most common physical disability in childhood — but it gets the least amount of attention from the media. CP deserves recognition, and I’ve decided to do something about it.  

Due to my idea and the help of a local sponsor, The Seattle Great Wheel lit up on World CP Day, October 6, 2018. I was also instrumental in getting the historic event announced on two local television stations.

I wanted to get more places to light up, so I created the official Go Green for CP campaign. I’ve asked 400+ (and counting) places in the United States to join support cerebral palsy awareness on both National Cerebral Palsy Awareness Day (March 25) and World CP Day 2019 (October 6). The response has been amazing! Almost all of the participants are lighting up in March AND October. My goal is to get all fifty states represented!

It’s time for CP to SHINE in 2019! I’ve never been more excited to show the world What CP Looks Like! Keep checking this post and/or the official FB page for updates. If you have a building, ferris wheel, fountain, etc. that can Go Green for CP, please e-mail me at nicole@nicoleluongo.com.
