Every year UCP of San Luis Obispo holds three events to grow awareness, activism and funds in support of people with disabilities in San Luis Obispo County.
In early Spring, we kick off the year with the Night Without Limits, an evening-time dinner and dancing event. At the Night Without Limits, we traditionally feature one of our programs and showcase all of the wonderful services that this program has done to help support people with disabilities and create a "Life Without Limits." We also hold a silent auction during "Night Without Limits". In 2013, we'll introduce Blackjack into the mix to add to the fun.
This year "Night Without Limits" features our newest program, Arts for Living. In the middle of the event, we'll show a video demonstrating their "Music Club" and showcase how music therapy not only helps increase expression, but also promotes inclusion and eliminates boundaries. Interested in learning more about Night Without Limits, then visit our Night Without Limits Page to see more information about our 2013 event.

For the month of September, UCP of San Luis Obispo County hosts the local branch of the World CP Challenge. As indicated by the title of the event, this is a worldwide fundraiser aimed to really engage it's participants with physical activity while bringing awareness to people with disabilities.
In the World CP Challenge, you and a group of three friends all band together to do physical activity. UCP of SLO County equips you with an odometer to track your steps and at the end of the day you record those steps into the World CP Challenge website. On that website, you and your team will summit up a virtual mountain - the more steps and activities that you do throughout the day, the higher you ascend up your mountain. The Challenge accepts and logs many other types of activities including: running, hiking, biking, swimming, gardening, surfing, yoga and more.
All the proceeds for the World CP Challenge go directly into both UCP of San Luis Obispo County and UCP's National Branch. Interested in participating? This is a great event to promote in your workplace with your workmates! Challenge your workmates to beat you or join you as you summit your mountain.
Are you an employer looking for a fun way to increase a Health-Care Initiative in your company. The World CP Challenge is a great way to jump start that initiative. Contact us at UCP of SLO County or visit our World CP Challenge - to Join page to learn more about how to be a part of the event.
The Walk & Roll is an nationally branded event by United Cerebral Palsy of SLO County. Our Walk & Roll is our longest standing fundraiser that has seen much success and fun in it's past years. We hold the Walk & Roll at Meadow Park, a beautiful park in San Luis Obispo with a great accessible paved trail. Participants of the walk can come hang out, chat with local vendors, take a nice walk on the trail and then enjoy a lunch all while listening to live music.
We invite you and your business or organization to start up Walk & Roll teams. The Walk & Roll directly supports UCP's C.I.P. Tours, an award winning program that provides supervised vacation & recreation opportunities for people with disabilities. C.I.P. Tours uniquely give people with disabilities an opportunity to visit locations like Disneyland, or Yosemite National Park or travel to far away locations like Hawaii or Washington D.C. The C.I.P. Tour provides supervision, transportation, food and lodging and is a highly successful and popular program. If you are wondering why you should join the Walk & Roll, please visit our C.I.P. Tours page under our Services tab to learn more.
