CONGRATULATIONS KALYNN’S KREW FOR REACHING THE GRAND CHAMPIONS CLUB!

The Walk for Apraxia is the largest fundraising and awareness event supporting the children, our Apraxia Stars, affected by childhood apraxia of speech. Walk teams who participate and raise $5,000 or more are recognized as part of the Grand Champions Club, receiving specialized benefits as a thank you for all of their dedication and hard work. This kind of fundraising allows Apraxia Kids to explore more support options offered to families and professionals and helps sustain our mission. A growing number of Walk for Apraxia teams continue to reach this special milestone and touch our hearts with their stories.

Team Kalynn’s Krew is a Grand Champions Club member and walked as participants of the 2020 Pittsburgh Virtual Walk for Apraxia to celebrate their Apraxia Star, Kalynn Coffin. Throughout 2020, this team has been able to raise an astounding $6,276.37! Apraxia Kids had the opportunity to interview the team captain, Loretta Coffin, to discuss this achievement.

 

Apraxia Kids: What message would you want to share about childhood apraxia of speech? Why is it important to you to spread awareness?

Loretta Coffin: My daughter will not just outgrow her Apraxia. She works very hard every day and has been since she was 22 months old!  She’s made such great strides, but she will deal with her Apraxia forever.

Apraxia Kids: Tell us about your team and who will walk with you at the Virtual Walk for Apraxia.

Loretta Coffin: Our family and friends from our neighborhood.

Apraxia Kids: What methods did you use to fundraise and become a Grand Champion member?

Loretta Coffin: We tell Kalynn’s story. She is a fighter, and her story is one that people want to hear. It’s easy to speak about something that you are so passionate about. We used a lot of social media but also face to face asks. So many people who haven’t met Kalynn now know her through social media.

Apraxia Kids: How would you inspire others to try and become either a Champions Club or Grand Champion member?

Loretta Coffin: Honestly, think of the biggest reason you are inspired. If it’s so passionate to you, that passion carries over when you share.  People want to help, and they just also want to be asked.

 

Becoming a Grand Champions Club member is an incredible achievement! Thank you, team Kalynn’s Krew. You have genuinely impacted the way Apraxia Kids can support children, families, and professionals affected by childhood apraxia of speech.
