Do you like running? Do you like running bling? Do you like running for an amazing cause?!
Are you in luck! The “Oh the Places you Will Go” virtual run is your opportunity to support children and adults with communication disorders!
Every May is designated as Better Hearing and Speech Month by the American Speech and Hearing Association. In the greater Sacramento area we celebrate this month by celebrating the accomplishments of children and adults with communication disorders and their families! Through fundraisers and generous donations of people just like you, we raise money to purchase tickets to a baseball game with the Sacramento River Cats! We provide tickets to these families and individuals who might not typically enjoy a ball game. For one night, their communication disabilities are not what makes them “different”, they are what make them unique and celebrated!
Additionally at this event we provide information to the community on speech, language and hearing services as well as educational material.
It is such a fantastic event! I hope you will join me in running the “Oh the Places You will Go” virtual run and help those with communication disorders realize, one of the many places they can go is to a ball game!
Plus you get this awesome bling!
