The Euro-Peds Foundation's mission is to enhance the quality of life for children who have
gross motor disorders --such as Cerebral Palsy, Spina Bifida, Traumatic Brain Injuries -- by
raising funds and awarding grants that help them receive life-altering intensive physical
therapy and education.
Here are the current Euro-Peds Foundation Programs:
The Euro-Peds Foundation awards treatment grants to children who are receiving intensive
physical therapy at Euro-Peds Intensive Pediatric Physical Therapy Clinic in Pontiac, MI. If
your child has been approved to attend the Euro-Peds Program and you would like to apply
for a treatment grant, download the grant application on our site.
Many children travel with their families from out-of-state to attend Euro-Peds for sessions
that last 2-4 weeks. Airfare, gas, hotel and other travel expenses are not typically covered
by insurance. EPF has established this program to help families with out-of-pocket lodging
expenses to help ease the financial burden.
ADOPT A EURO-KID PROGRAM:
At times, requests for grants may exceed the funds available through the Treatment & Travel
grants. EPF is committed to helping every child so we may choose to create an Adopt A Euro-
Kid fundraising page. After reviewing the stories and needs of our Adopt A Euro-Kids, supp-
orters may choose to donate to a specific child's Euro-Peds session.
