Winter Bike Camp 2020 was a huge success over at our friends’s United Cerebral Palsy of the North Bay! We love seeing all the smiling faces of the campers!
More than 23 campers attended who were at all levels of experience riding. Thank you to all the volunteers, Sonoma State students, staff and supportive families who cheered on the bikers throughout the weekend! Stay in touch with UCP of the North Bay to find about Bike Camp in June!
This December let’s remember all the amazing things that make you you! You might do things differently, but you CAN do them! Childhood is all about fun and games, learning from your family, and supporting one another. Let’s be thankful for December holidays and more time to spend together!
Did you know that 95% of disabled roles in Hollywood are played by able-bodied actors, Maysoon Zayid, a comedian with CP, is beginning to make a change!
“My advice to young people with CP that are looking to get into Hollywood is you have to work harder than everyone else,” Zayid said. “I wish that I could tell you that you didn’t, but you do. So the most important thing is make sure your talent is there. Make sure when you get the opportunity that your art and your craft is so flawless that they don’t even remember that you have a disability.”
Up, up, and away! Little Brantley Morse wins with his halloween costume as Carl Fredricksen from the hit Pixar film, UP!
“It is Brantley Morse’s first time dressing up for Halloween, and he definitely got in the spirit! Brantley’s mother Brittany wanted to incorporate his medical equipment in the costume to show the world that Brantley is making the absolute best out of his disabilities. Brantley was born at only 24 weeks gestation and since then, he has been beating the odds while fighting cerebral palsy, stage 3 kidney disease, chronic lung disease and gastroparesis. The 2 and a half year old got to test out his costume as Carl from the movie “Up” at a fall festival last weekend and is looking forward to celebrating Halloween this year.”
