Eight mothers, who all have a child with permanent hearing loss, have decided to fundraise for Telethon Speech & Hearing in support of the program which is helping their child learn to hear and speak.
Each family will participate in the HBF Run for a Reason this May.
From their fundraising team page:
“We are a group of ordinary mums from all over Perth, on an extraordinary journey. With one thing that has brought us together. Someone we love with every inch of our heart has Permanent Hearing Loss, OUR CHILD.”
“We are all battling through an often frustrating journey to ensure our children can learn to hear and speak. But we aren’t alone in this TELETHON SPEECH & HEARING supports us every step of the way.”
“We are doing the HBF Run for a Reason together this year to raise money for TELETHON SPEECH & HEARING in Wembley. The work they do ensures that children with hearing loss and other [speech and] language delays in WA receive the help and support they need.”
All children are currently enrolled in the Chatterbox Program at Telethon Speech & Hearing – an early intervention program for children with hearing loss. Using a multi-disciplinary approach, families have access to both individual and group therapy sessions to focus on developing their child’s listening, speech and language skills.
So far, the mother’s group has raised over $5,900 for Telethon Speech & Hearing and hopes to raise much more before the HBF Run for a Reason event in May.
Help our families to fundraise for TSH and donate to the ‘Telethon Baby Grow and Connect Playgroup’ online.
