Proceeds benefit United Cerebral Palsy of Orange County
Based on 2 Strikeouts, each worth $1,007
Cerebral Palsy is the most common physical disability in childhood, and while it is not degenerative, the challenges a person with CP faces related to their diagnosis can last a lifetime. That’s why I am partnering with UCP of Orange County to Strikeout CP. While there isn’t a cure for this disorder, programs like UCP-OC’s early intervention for newborns and ongoing multidisciplinary therapy help children overcome challenges of their diagnosis to reach their full potential.
We often take for granted the “firsts” of childhood - crawling, walking, talking. But for children with CP and other developmental disabilities or delays, these firsts require weeks, months, or even years of hard work with the help of a specially trained therapist or child development specialist.
This cause is dear to my heart because my daughter, Teddy, has CP. My wife, Amanda, and I know firsthand the critical importance of organizations like UCP-OC for families like ours. We also know that accessing the services your child needs can be difficult, especially for lower income families. Through this campaign, we will help UCP-OC continue to provide life-changing services to children and families affected by a wide range of disabilities, regardless of their ability to pay. Approximately 30% of the families UCP-OC serves each year are considered low-income, and UCP-OC is unable to provide these services without donations from community members who care.
Please consider joining me, Amanda, and Angels Baseball in support of this important cause. The Angels have been long-time supporters of UCP-OC and I am so grateful to have been introduced to them and the incredible work they do to help each child reach their full potential and live a Life Without Limits. Whether you make a one-time contribution today or keep the giving going all season long by pledging support for each strikeout I make during the regular season, you are helping kids overcome the challenges of CP and other developmental disabilities. Follow along this season as we Strikeout CP!
