for Stuttering Awareness in 2019
It was ten years ago that Greg O'Grady started planning a Walk/Run Fundraiser to publicize the need for stuttering treatment and raise money for the Speech and Stuttering Institute in Toronto. The event took place in September of 2012, had a barbecue and entertainment and helped to raise thousands of dollars for the clinic to help with finances for individuals and families that needed support. It became an annual celebration! When Greg retired and moved back to his home province of Newfoundland, he continued the tradition in both regions, St. John's and Toronto. In 2020 COVID lockdown put a damper on the gathering, and although it was cancelled for Toronto, it was safely conducted in St. John's using precautions such as masks and social distancing. This year, the ninth anniversary, it will be taking place in Mount Pearl, NF.
If you live in the Maritimes (or are planning a visit there!) save the date of October 3, to join Greg and the Newfoundland Labrador Stuttering Association and have fun raising money for a worthwhile cause!
