BENEFITING: SAY: The Stuttering Association for the Young

Donate to help children-in-need from Chicago & the Midwest!
I'm Corey Caporale and BIKE/HIKE 720 is my personal journey that supports SAY: The Stuttering Association for the Young - an organization that helps kids rise above the physical, social, and emotional struggles from stuttering.
This 2016 ride will be my 4th Annual Ride for these kids!
On July 29th, I kick-off BIKE/HIKE 720 - another year of biking from Chicago to Camp SAY, in Hendersonville, North Carolina. I expect to arrive at Camp SAY on August 7th - so that's 9 days on the road and more than 700 miles biked in support of young people who stutter.
At the end of this journey, I'll ride into Camp SAY to meet all of the incredible kids! Join me every mile of the way and give a child who stutters the gift of confidence, communication skills and friendships to last a lifetime. It’s a tragedy that kids & teens who stutter are bullied for the way they speak with many literally silenced by cruelty that breaks their spirit and in some cases even crushes their will to live. Due to this misunderstood speech disorder kids often feel isolated and alone.
That’s why SAY established Camp SAY, and why for the fourth year in a row, I'm biking more than 700 miles to raise financial aid so children in need can attend camp next summer. Imagine a child who stutters looking out of the window at the neighborhood kids playing - being afraid to join them because of the way they speak. Camp SAY changes all that!
