4th Annual Walk for Talk | October 12-15, 2023

The 4th Annual Walk for Talk is a four-day event to benefit Dysphonia International. For 2023, it begins on Thursday, October 12 and runs until Sunday, October 15, so there is plenty of time to be part of it! You can participate no matter where you live. Choose one day or do something on each one of the days. The choice is yours on how you want to support our voice. You can decide on your sport or activity, whether alone or in a group. You can walk, run, bike, golf, kayak, surf, swim, or play a team sport. There is no cost to participate, and all ages are welcome!! So invite your family, friends, co-workers, healthcare professionals, and even your pets, to be part of the Walk. Our goal is to fund more research so that we can find answers for better treatments and a cure for spasmodic dysphonia and related voice conditions. By all of us working together, we can make this happen. Every step gets us closer to a cure! 


The 4th annual Walk for Talk will take place October 12-15, 2023, and plans are underway! Our local Support Groups will raise the Dysphonia International banner with in-person events. All ages are welcome, so invite family, friends, co-workers, and healthcare professionals to support you in Walk for Talk. And if you are interested in organizing an event, be sure to contact us



The term dysphonia refers to having an abnormal voice. Most people think of vocal issues as a temporary problem like laryngitis, but there are numerous long-term voice disorders, often with no known cause, limited or no treatments options, and no cure. This can completely change one's life, affecting everything from relationships to careers and even simple things like talking on the phone or ordering at a drive-thru restaurant. Identity is often intertwined with our ability to communicate. When you have a voice disorder, the symptoms may alter your voice's volume, pitch, and intonation. This may change how your messages are conveyed and even received, causing frustration to both the speaker and the listener.
