"My nephew Tyler has Apraxia which is a speech disorder. He is currently 6 years old and up until last year couldn't speak other than making noises. Apraxia is a condition where the muscles that you use to form words are not developed properly. Now he is a 6 year old who can speak, talk in sentences and is currently in 1st grade. Its through an AMAZING organization (Childhood Apraxia Speech Association) like this one that he was able to get the necessary therapies to develop coherent speaking abilities. To date, the local chapter has raised over $100,000! In this picture we are flexing our muscles! We overachieved our fundraising goal by $500.00 In this picture is Tyler who is the inspiration for Team Perseverance and his two sisters Emma and Adisyn (Along with their Aunt Alissa)"

"Our youngest son has Apraxia. Apraxia is a breakdown in the transmission of messages from the brain to the muscles in the jaw, cheeks, lip, tongue and palate. He knows what he wants to say, but there is a roadblock obstructing the signal from the brain to the mouth. The muscles ignore, or don't hear, what the brain commands. One in five of every 1,000 children are affected each year. Our older son (5 years old) wanted to raise money for Apraxia Awareness and decided to run in a Toddler Trot. In less than 2 weeks we raised over $20,000. We had a lot of support at the race and the Greatest T Shirt to display our cause!"
