We invite you, your family, your friends, your neighbors, your co-workers, your speech therapists, your therapists and doctors, your child’s teachers … EVERYONE touched by your child and family…to walk with us in support and to build awareness.

Over the past three years, we’ve experienced the proud support of hundreds of walkers and donors contributing close to $100,000 to the Childhood Apraxia of Speech Association of North America (CASANA) for national apraxia of speech awareness, education and research. This year, in collaboration with CASANA, The Apraxia Connection will hold the 4th annual walk for children with apraxia and associated disorders. Proceeds from online walk donations and all walk registrations will benefit both the national mission of CASANA and our Midwestern mission of The Apraxia Connection. Proceeds from our on-site raffle, silent auction and the generous participation of area clinics and organizations invested in special needs development will directly benefit The Apraxia Connection.
Please join us for food, drink, games, activities, crafts, music, two great playgrounds and more all within a beautiful park setting. The one-mile park path is stroller and wheelchair-friendly.
