Will you be talking, walking, running or rolling on DATE?

The Talk, Walk ‘n Roll for the Aphasia Institute is usually part of the Toronto Challenge — a multi-charity event supported by the City of Toronto. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Toronto Challenge has been cancelled this year.

Instead, we’re asking everyone to take a short time out of their day on Sunday, July 25, 2021, to do the following:

  1. Talk with family or friends in person or on the phone, while you walk or roll in or near your home. Join us – and encourage others to join us – in appreciation of the importance of talk and conversation in our daily lives. This year, our annual Talk, Walk ‘n Roll once again highlights our promise to people with aphasia and their families: “We help you navigate your life one conversation at a time.”
  2. Take pictures of or write a short paragraph on how you celebrated the Talk, Walk ‘n Roll. Send them to us at, and we’ll share them (with your permission) with the rest of the Aphasia Institute community of clients, family, staff, volunteers, and board members.

We wish you safe physical distancing during this crisis. And please keep talking!

Special Video & Email/Social Media Templates

If you would like some ideas on how to craft the perfect e-mail message to potential donors, take a look at our e-mail message templates. There is a special 2-minute video, created by Gayle Wilmot, in cooperation with our own clients and volunteers, talking about the impact of social isolation and the online and social-distance support we have created to help during this difficult time. Please share it with family and friends who may support you or have supported you this year!

"The training I attended at the Aphasia Institute served to enhance my existing skills in communicating with persons with aphasia and provided me with an abundance of new knowledge and strategies. I feel confident now that I can better communicate with my patients/clients as well as train other professionals and support personnel to communicate effectively with persons with aphasia. The staff are professional and bring a wealth of experience to the table. Great courses!"
