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

The Talk, Walk ‘n Roll, usually part of the Toronto Challenge—a multi-charity event supported by the City of Toronto—will be virtual for one more year. Please join us for the 25th anniversary from from your own home, backyard, or community on the day of the event to talk, walk, or roll.

On Sunday, July 24, 2022, please take a short time out of your day to:

  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 talkwalk@aphasia.ca, 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!

"This course has given me lots of tools to communicate with my clients with aphasia. It has given me new ideas and visions and I’m looking forward to share the SCATM method with my colleagues and other professionals in my rehabilitation centre. Thank you for the course! "
