A Day in the Life of This SLP: This is Why We Walk…
Children’s Communication Center’s Friends’ Team at the Autism Speaks U Club 5K at Florida State University
Saturday, April 9th, 2016
Everyone on our Children’s Communication Center Friends’ Team walks for a different reason, but we walk together with the common goals of increasing awareness, understanding & support of families living with autism spectrum disorders. Through our combined efforts we move closer to finding answers to the many questions surrounding this complex disorder.
Our Team of 16 included friends, neighbors, parents, children, teens & “Awesome Aussies for Autism”, newly formed for this occasion. This was our first Team for a 5K and clearly only the beginning of Teams for Children’s Communication Center & Friends!
The goal of 10 joining our Team was surpassed, as was our fundraising goal of $500, which was $1770 on the day of the event. Some donations continue to be made in honor of our Team! The support by ALL on our Team and ALL for our Team can only be described as “overwhelming fantabulous!”
8:00 AM ~ Children’s Communication Center’s Friends’ Team is ready to GO! Walk or run, a mile is a mile! Here’s to 3.11 miles together making a difference😎 Thank you, Autism Speaks U club @ FSU for organizing this event in Tally.
At the Finish Line ~ Our Children’s Communication Center Friends’ Team started together & we all completed the 5K representing the first & last to arrive with all the times in-between! Our 6-year-old participant walked the entire race with a steady pace!
“TOGETHER, WE DID MAKE A DIFFERENCE!
AUTISM AFFECTS 1 IN EVERY 68 CHILDREN
THIS IS WHY WE WALK!
AND OUR EFFORTS DO NOT STOP HERE…”
An awesome day in the life of this SLP,
