Why Coordinate a Walk?
Why Coordinate A Walk For Apraxia?
Thank you for your interest in starting a Walk for Apraxia® in your community. Walk Coordinators are community volunteers who recognize the need for more local awareness about apraxia and they work on planning an event in their area to help do just that.
“My son, Donovan, was diagnosed with Childhood Apraxia of Speech at 3 years old. Trevor, Donovan’s older brother, encouraged me to start a walk in order to help bring awareness to our area. The most exciting part of organizing a walk was seeing new faces for support and discovering more families dealing with the disorder in their everyday life. We are not alone!” – Tabatha Rackley, Tallahassee, FL
“I helped coordinate a walk for CASANA this past year because my son has CAS and communication has been a struggle for him and us every day of his life. To hear his voice is one of the most amazing things in the world! Every parent who has a child with CAS deserves to have the pure joy of hearing a simple hello. I coordinated a walk to help raise money for CASANA so other families are aware of the information and resources available to get the help they need to make that dream a reality.” – Sarah Sasiak, Bridgewater, NJ
