Walk for Talk

Thu October 20 - Mon October 31



Our annual Walk for Talk is a four-day event to benefit Dysphonia International, formerly the National Spasmodic Dysphonia Association (NSDA). First held in 2020, this event gives thousands of people a glimpse of the impact of spasmodic dysphonia and related voice conditions through the stories our community shares. This event provides the opportunity to invite family, friends, co-workers, support group communities, healthcare professionals, and even pets to be part of our organization and better understand the challenges people living with a voice disorder face on a daily basis. The event provides a chance to feel empowered by expanding awareness and raising funds for research. There is no cost, and you can register online. We have local in-person walks along with the virtual option. Then it is your choice how to support our voice. You can walk, run, bike, swim, or however you would like to "use your feet to help us defeat spasmodic dysphonia and related voice conditions." No matter where you live, you can be part of Walk for Talk! In addition to raising awareness, we walk to help find answers, better treatments and hopefully cures for these voice disorders that impact so many in our community. All donations will be doubled dollar-for-dollar, meaning every gift goes even further!  

About the Organization

You may know us better as the National Spasmodic Dysphonia Association (NSDA). Recently, we have changed our name to Dysphonia International to better reflect the inclusivity of our organization. We have members who are living with other vocal conditions including muscle tension dysphonia, vocal tremor, and vocal cord paralysis, which can either co-occur with SD or be diagnosed as the only voice issue. It also allows us to help more people living with voice conditions regardless of the cause, their location, or age. While our name has changed our mission has not! We are still dedicated to improving the lives of people with spasmodic dysphonia and related voice conditions through research, education, awareness, and support. We are a community that cares about you and your voice! Learn more at dysphonia.org.
