As someone who stammered from an early age, I know the sense of liberation, community and worth that theater can provide.
OUR TIME gives children just that, and so much more. It's an astonishing organization, and its work transforms kids' lives. Literally. So, to support them, I've commited to run 26.2 miles across the five boroughs of New York City on November 6th 2011.
All I'm asking you to do for them is sponsor me ... please do.
"Our Time is a non-profit organization that uses the arts to improve the confidence and communication skills of children who stutter. Through a local New York City-based program and a summer camp open to children from around the nation and abroad, Our Time helps young people transform their fear and shame from stuttering into confidence and determination to reach their fullest potential. Our Time participants gain enriching friendships and experience tangible success, giving them the confidence to overcome the challenges presented by stuttering.
Our Time serves children who stutter, their young family members and friends, ages 5 to 18, from a wide diversity of backgrounds. The company is committed to offering its NYC programming free of charge and providing financial aid for its national program, Camp Our Time."
