WALK FOR APRAXIA

The Walk for Apraxia is the signature fundraising event for Apraxia Kids. It brings together those touched by apraxia, uniting families and professionals in a community of support. At the heart of the Walk for Apraxia is the celebration of our Apraxia Stars. Each child with apraxia receives a medal in recognition of the hard work that goes into finding their voices. Join us at your local event and discover a network of support!

Apraxia Kids could not host Walk for Apraxia events without our dedicated and passionate volunteers. They organize walks so that our stars can have a special day that is all about them!
