Improving the lives of those who suffer from cerebral palsy and various disabilities
Founded in 2007
The One Step Closer Foundation
The 1SCF, through multiple fundraising efforts, supports existing groups, individuals, and research for those already coping with cerebral palsy (CP) and other disabilities. The 1SCF strives to promote awareness and understanding of the disease through educational programs, support groups and access to previously unknown research. The 1SCF will also direct funds to researchers seeking for medical advancements in treating and diagnosing CP.
This initiative focuses on making patients’ hospital stays more manageable & pleasant. We have partnered with world-renowned hospitals such as Shriner’s Hospitals for Children, MD Anderson, Memorial Hermann…
SPORTS NIGHT OUT
This program involves taking people (adults and children), with various disabilities from various hospitals & rehabilitation centers all over the nation out to a multitude of sporting events around the US.
RESEARCH & WELLNESS INITIATIVE
This program supports research to find ways to alleviate the effects and burdens brought on by CP and various disabilities, with the ultimate goal of finding a cure for the disease…
We believe that everyone is entitled to an extraordinary life, and movement is key to that. We partnered up with an innovative company called Freedom Concepts. They custom build bicycles based on an individual’s specific disability.
This one-on-one is designed to provide assistance on an individual level to people primarily with cerebral palsy, but other disabilities as well. Disabilities impact each person differently and there is no one answer to everyone’s problems.
ONE STEP CLOSER SCHOLARSHIP PROGRAM
We provide scholarships opportunities for aspiring students with disabilities who have a thirst for knowledge & desire to succeed without having to worry about medical/health costs getting in the way.
ONE STEP WISHES
This program involves granting wishes for critically ill people with disabilities. We want to make every minute the recipient has as special as can be. In order to screen these requests we work directly with our partnered hospitals.
