LATEST NEWS!

UCP of the North Bay is proud to announce acceptance into the “Travis Credit Union Foundation’s COVID-19 Relief Initiative!”  From now through September 30, 2020, any donations made through the Travis Credit Union Fund (TCUF) website will be matched up to $20,000, so we have extended our #GivingTuesdayNow campaign to enable us to purchase more much needed technology for our students and employees with disabilities, their families, and staff, to stay connected.  This means we could raise an additional $40,000 to purchase an additional 1,000 fire tablets and/or other technology or connectivity for participants!

For those members of our community that already donated during the #GivingTuesdayNow campaign, please consider doing so again at that level, as this time, your gift will be matched!  For those who have not given yet, please consider your donations will now have twice the impact!

Please visit the TCUF website, www.tcufund.org Community Funding page and select “UCP of the North Bay” from the dropdown menu to make your donation that will instantly be matched!

#GivingTuesdayNow is a global day of giving and unity that took place on May 5, 2020, as an emergency response to the unprecedented need caused by COVID-19.

Please join United Cerebral Palsy of the North Bay as we come together to create a wave of generosity, citizen engagement, action from business and philanthropy, and support for communities around the world.

Staying connected is a key ingredient to navigating these unusual times. While many of our participants, staff and their families and friends have embraced technology and are able to “see” each other through platforms such as “Zoom,” there are some who go without. Our goal is to get the technology into everyone’s hands to be able to stay connected. To date, UCP of the North Bay has conducted hundreds of online classes, meetings, and “check-ins” with a large percentage of our network across four counties in the North Bay, but there are still some who cannot connect.

Please take seriously the continuing recommendations for social distancing. We are saving lives! Work hard, be kind, stay home and stay connected.

Hi friends!
October 6th is World Cerebral Palsy day!
Today we come together (virtually) to celebrate, to build awareness of what CP is and to create change!

At BOOST we celebrate our students achievements! It is impressive how all of them have adapted to this new crazy schedule and continued to work towards their goals. We are so proud of you for doing all this with a smile on your face!

Did you know that there are 17 million people around the world living with cerebral palsy? It is the most common physical disability in childhood. It primarily affects movement, but people with CP may also have visual, learning, hearing, speech, epilepsy and intellectual impairments.

BOOST offers a classroom program that is structured specifically for children with Cerebral Palsy and other motor disabilities. Our students learn best in a movement based structure. Therefore we provide multiple opportunities where they can practice and learn to master their skills. We are proud to be an organization that is creating change and working hard so that our students can have a better life.

Let’s celebrate in person next year! 💚💚💚

Thank you to our UCPNB family for loving, caring and advocating for our students! Margaret Farman, Laura Briggin, Nate Yates, Jen Whalen, Steve Gatlin, Amanda Buhrer, Devin Cornish, Kiana Shibata, Sammie Wills, Nana Peña Caldera💚💚

World CP Day is an opportunity for the whole world to come together to recognize and celebrate the 17 million people around the world living with cerebral palsy.

On 6 October every year, individuals, families and organizations celebrate by sharing stories, hosting events, and wearing the color green.

Cerebral palsy is the most common childhood disability, yet around the globe, there’s a broad lack of knowledge of what it is and how it’s caused, even in the medical field.

Through World CP Day we can build awareness of what CP is, how it’s caused, and how early detection and intervention is the key to improving outcomes for people with CP.

As World CP Day continues to grow in popularity, we will continue to show the world all the incredible things that people with cerebral palsy achieve when barriers are removed.
