THE STORY:

Corey Caporale wrote -

 


Stuttering is the involuntary disruption or blocking of speech.  I invite you to join me in supporting a cause that empowers children who stutter to not let their speech disrupt, stop, or block them from speaking, but to move forward and stutter on with confidence.

My name is Corey, and I am a person who stutters.  Bike/Hike 670 is my personal journey inspired by Our Time, a NYC-based non-profit organization that helps kids rise above their physical, social, and emotional struggles from stuttering.  They do this through groundbreaking theatre-arts, speech therapy, and summer camp programs that can have a life long impact on the kids they serve.

Since 2001, Our Time has been using the theatre and music as a vehicle for kids who stutter to express themselves.  Five years ago, the organization added a summer camp program to establish a place where kids who stutter, along with their young relatives and friends, can come together from around the nation, kick back and relax, knowing they aren’t alone.  Two years ago, Our Time added speech therapy services in NYC, and this summer they launched an 8-week arts program in my native Chicago!

The organization has thrived because of its generous, big-hearted community of supporters.  People like you and me can support the important work of this non-profit, allowing it to impact more lives.

In an effort to raise funds for Our Time, I will head out on a 670 mile biking and hiking adventure from Chicago, Illinois, to Camp Our Time, located in Hendersonville, North Carolina, symbolically linking these two great programs and creating stuttering awareness.  I have never biked over 80 miles on a trip or hiked over 30, but an epic journey is something that I have always had the desire to do.  It is my way to move forward.  It is my way to stutter on!

Please join me in supporting this very worthy organization by becoming my sponsor.
