Meet Robyn Cummins from World CP Day

My work as a disability advocate has introduced me to people, opportunities from around the globe. I’m particularly proud to be a member of the first World CP Day Committee.

I had the honor of interviewing Robyn Cummins from World CP Day (WCPD), which was founded in 2012, and is now celebrated in 62 countries. Robyn has worked for Cerebral Palsy Alliance in Australia for 20 years and is passionate about making a difference in the lives of children and adults with cerebral palsy and their families. She is a communications specialist, community organizer, self-confessed tech geek and is excited by the power of the internet to connect people around the cause of CP.

In What CP Looks Like’s exclusive FB live video, we discuss:

  • The annual fixed date of October 6 (from 2017 going forward) and the importance of celebrating World CP Day every year.
  • Why WCPD doesn’t get a lot of media attention and what you can do to change it.
  • The perception of cerebral palsy around the world.
  • The WCPD FB page + the WCPD Awards 2017
  • How you can submit to World CP Day’s blog, put your name on the map and much more!

I’d love to hear your feedback. How did you celebrate WCPD this year?

Thanks for watching, supporting World CP Day. Go Green 4 CP!

  • Nicki,
    Your interview with Robyn was informative and very interesting. Her organization is doing amazing things and Australia is pioneering good for the CP community. I hope the advocacy of yours and others in your community can bring more awareness and resources to those with CP in the United States! Where is the White House Admin???

    • Thanks, Laurie! I’m glad you enjoyed my interview with Robyn. She’s great! Although we’ve come a long way, there is still a lot to be done to raise awareness about cerebral palsy — especially in the U.S.
