Los Angeles SD Support Group Walk for TalkWHEN | Saturday, October 16, 2021TIME | 10:00 AM PTLOCATION | 6241 Crescent Park West, Playa Vista, CA 90094
The Los Angeles Spasmodic Dysphonia Support Group invites you to join us for the Walk for Talk to Benefit the NSDA. Those of us with SD often find it difficult, or even impossible, to communicate verbally; however our voices can be heard. Instead of feeling powerless, I decided to use my “voice” to empower those without one to have hope in the future. For this reason I have again decided to participate in the NSDA’S Walk for Talk fundraiser. This year my Walk For Talk will be held on Saturday, October 16th, starting at my condo in Playa Vista. In appreciation, I will provide a yummy lunch al fresco on the lawn in front of my house. You can speak loudly, scream and yell on behalf of those who cannot through your generous donations. Please RSVP to Toni by October 1.
What is the 2nd Annual Walk for Talk?
The 2nd Walk for Talk is a five-day event to benefit the National Spasmodic Dysphonia Association. The goal is to bring together the NSDA community both increase awareness of voice conditions and raise money to help us fund vital research to defeat spasmodic dysphonia and related voice conditions. Last year, most events were held virtually yet the NSDA community came together with camaraderie, mentoring, visibility, unity, empowerment, encouragement, and strength. This year, some of us are meeting in-person, but no matter where you live, you can be part of this event
Can I still participate even if I can’t make the in-person event?
Yes! Even if you can’t join us for the in-person walk, you can still participate during the five-day event. There is no cost and you can register online. Then it is your choice how to support our voice. You can walk, run, bike, swim, or however you would like to “use your feet to help us defeat spasmodic dysphonia and related voice conditions.”
Why Walk for Talk?
Since 1989, NSDA has been dedicated to improving the lives of people with spasmodic dysphonia and related voice conditions through research, education, awareness, and support. The NSDA knows about the challenges those of us with voice disorders are facing. It is a community that cares about you and your voice!
