Fundraising Information | Volunteering Information

The Cerebral Palsy Education Centre (CPEC) is proud to be the 2015 Medibank Melbourne Marathon Premier Charity.

Cerebral Palsy is the most common childhood disability in Australia.

It is also one of the most expensive to manage.

CPEC is the only centre of its kind in Australia that specialises in supporting children with cerebral palsy and like conditions.

We support over 110 children every year. They start in our service as babies and we offer support until they reach adulthood.

We provide intensive programs that include speech pathology, physiotherapy and occupational therapy.  We support children across all areas of their daily lives, to give them the skills and confidence to learn, participate and grow.

Stats about CP

The kids at CPEC need your support to help raise $250,000 as part of this year's Melbourne Marathon festival, to help fund their services for 2016.


So, build your fundraising page now and get the message out to your friends, family and work colleagues and help raise as much as you can for the kids at CPEC!

Volunteering for CPEC

As the premiere charity for this event, CPEC must supply 250 volunteers to help out over the Marathon period. 

Some of the tasks that our volunteers will be managing are:

• Tagging of clothing before and after the events

• Directing Runners at the MCG to the race start line

• Directing Runners as they approach and finish at the MCG

• Directing Runners to the massage areas, back to collect clothing, and to meet with their families and friends after their races.


Good Luck for your Marathon event and thank you from all the kids at CPEC!
