Eagle Boys raises more than $20,000 for cerebral palsy research

The donation is part of Eagle Boys Pizza’s three-year partnership with Cerebral Palsy Alliance.

Eagle Boys has raised more than $20,000 for Cerebral Palsy Alliance, helping it to support the Cerebral Palsy Register and continue researching the causes of this complex condition.

The donation is the first of many to come and part of Eagle Boys Pizza’s three-year partnership with Cerebral Palsy Alliance.

Eagle Boys’ network of over 340 stores collectively raised $21,675 across a seven-day campaign that donated $1 from every dessert sold during Cerebral Palsy Awareness Week (August 1 to 7) to Cerebral Palsy Alliance.

All funds raised have gone to Cerebral Palsy Alliance’s Research Foundation to fund a researcher in continuing to work towards finding a cause and helping to further develop the Cerebral Palsy Register.

Eagle Boys Pizza CEO Todd Clayton said the pizza maker had committed to raise $200,000 during the next three years as part of its partnership with Cerebral Palsy Alliance.

“In Australia, a child is born with cerebral palsy every 15 hours. It is the most common physical disability in childhood so it was important for us all to pitch in and promote national awareness of the condition,” he said.
