I look forward to the Walk for Apraxia every year. I know it is a special day for me to celebrate my accomplishments with family, friends, and supporters and I wear my medal with pride. ~Written by Frankie's parents. The way he smiles and talks about Walk day makes us imagine this is what he is thinking.
Frankie has come so far in his journey with apraxia of speech, and yet, has so many more hurdles to leap. That's ok, his spirit shines. Of course, there are great days and sometimes bad moments, but at the end of the day all he wants to do is play video games, ride his bike, or be with friends.
Why I walk for Apraxia Kids!
I walk to support all children diagnosed with apraxia of speech - our Apraxia Stars. To show these children they are not alone and to acknowledge all the hard work they must do to overcome communication challenges that affect their day-to-day lives.
I walk to raise funds for the mission of Apraxia Kids – to strengthen the support systems in the lives of children with apraxia of speech by educating professionals and families; facilitating community engagement and outreach; and investing in the future through advocacy and research.
Please help me meet my fundraising goal by making a donation now or by joining our team. You, too, can make an impact for children and families affected by apraxia!
I believe, “Every child deserves a voice”.
