Walk for Children with Apraxia of Speech
Walk-a-Thon to raise awareness and money for the Childhood Apraxia of Speech Association of North America (CASANA).
My name is Elizabeth Fernandez and I’m organizing the 1st Annual Yakima Walk-a-Thon to raise awareness and money for the Childhood Apraxia of Speech Association of North America (CASANA). It is the only national non-profit that is dedicated to Childhood Apraxia of Speech; a motor speech disorder.
This is the first event like this in Washington! We are striving for great participation to kick off our first year. Our organization would love to have you join the walk on Saturday, October 5th, 2013. It is a great family event that includes a walk on a paved trail in Kissel Park; plus there are many activities planned for both kids and adults.
We are currently looking for company, team and/or individual sponsorships, as well as, teams and individuals to help at the event. Included with this letter is information and paperwork regarding sponsorship opportunities. You can also visit the Yakima walk site at http://secure.apraxia-kids.org/yakimawalk. This link provides details about the event and event registration is available.
Childhood Apraxia of Speech is not well known within our communities. We are hoping to change this. There are many children and families who struggle with this speech disorder every day. They deserve the best care they can receive and with the help of so many people like you, these kids are finding their voices! It is amazing to see how this has such positive impacts on them.
Please take this opportunity to support us and help raise awareness of this disorder. Your kind donation, in any amount, will help raise money for future programs and much needed research to study the cause of this disorder.
Thank you for taking the time to consider a sponsorship opportunity. Our team is dedicated to Apraxia research, helping kids and families, and increasing awareness to this unknown disorder. We look forward to hearing from you! Sponsorship forms need to be returned to CASANA by August 12th to have your name included on the printed materials. If you have questions, please contact me at 509.823.4703.
