From the Walk Coordinator:
"I am planning this event in recognition of my 4-year-old grandson, Wyatt Donnelly, who was recently diagnosed with Childhood Apraxia of Speech (CAS). I had never realized that this disorder even existed, as I am sure happens to most people. I was worried for some time that he wasn't beginning to speak. He is getting speech therapy at home three days a week and is doing very well at learning sign language. I hope that someday I will be able to hear him tell me ‘I Love You Gramma’ but I will not love him any less if he is unable to say it. He looks at me and signs it to me and I can see it in his face that he loves me.

The walk is being held to benefit the Childhood Apraxia of Speech Association of North America (CASANA). All proceeds will benefit apraxia research and programs."

Register by Sunday, May 26, 2013 to receive an official Apraxia Walk t-shirt in your size!
