“We thank all of the participants, volunteers, and sponsors who make it a fun day to paddle down the Brandywine for great cause,” said Margaret Rybinski, Executive Director of the Cerebral Palsy Association of Chester County.
The Exton-based nonprofit serves people with not only Cerebral Palsy but a variety of physical disabilities, like spinal cord injuries and multiple sclerosis. It also provides services to people with brain injury and autism. Its Children’s Early Intervention program provides comprehensive services to infant and toddlers with developmental delays.
The Cerebral Palsy Association of Chester County accomplishes its mission to enhance the abilities and support the independence of people with Cerebral Palsy and other disabilities throughout their lives by:
- providing the highest quality of services to individuals with disabilities and their families
