THE STORY:

You may be aware that both Alan's mother and father are deaf.  When they were children, there were very few schools and programs dedicated to early childhood development of the deaf and hard-of-hearing.  We are running the Falmouth Road Race (http://www.falmouthroadrace.com/) on August 12, 2012 to support the Clarke Schools for Hearing and Speech. Alan's father, Glen,  is a graduate of the Clarke Schools and the support that Clarke provided him as a child had a profound impact on his life.

Clarke was founded in 1867 in Northampton by Gardiner Green Hubbard, whose four-year-old daughter, Mabel, became deaf from scarlet fever. Firmly believing his daughter could speak and learn just like other children, Hubbard hired a teacher to work with Mabel on her speech and language. At age 10, Mabel did as well in the classroom as any of her hearing peers.

With the help of philanthropist John Clarke, Hubbard started Clarke School to help other deaf children learn to listen, speak, and succeed. A trailblazing organization from the very beginning, Clarke became the first school in the country to teach deaf students using the oral method and the first to recognize the importance of successfully mainstreaming deaf students into their neighborhood schools.  After graduating from Clarke,  Glen Morrison went on to graduate from public high school in Lexington, MA.  He then went on to study and eventually start his own business in the skilled trade of dental engineering.  We are proud of his many accomplishments and the role Clarke played in his early development.

Today Clarke provides children who are deaf and hard of hearing with the listening, learning and spoken language skills they need to succeed. Annually more than 800 children and their families benefit from programs and services at our five campus locations: Boston, Jacksonville, New York City, Northampton and Philadelphia.

We sincerely hope that you will support our run for the Clarke Schools with a donation of any amount.  Donations can be made online or via mail: Development Office 47 Round Hill Rd. Northampton, MA01060 – please be sure to include Nicole or Alan's name on the memo line.

Thank you!!
