Hello friends/family as the NSSLHA chapter president at Mercy College I have started a fundraising team to Walk for Apraxia. The Walk for Apraxia is the largest fundraising and awareness event supporting children affected by childhood apraxia of speech across the US and Canada. The Walk celebrates the lives and hard work of our kids, our Apraxia Stars, who work so hard every day to overcome childhood apraxia of speech. Each Apraxia Star who registers for the Walk is recognized individually for their hard work. They also receive a medal to celebrate their achievements! At the Walk for Apraxia, we also come together to raise funds to support the programs that help our Stars shine. The Walk for Apraxia supports educational opportunities, referral services, awareness, financial aid, support for research, and much more. We are making our apraxia community tighter, stronger, and ready for the road ahead. Apraxia Kids also provides training and education of Speech Language Pathologists.
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”.
