The department of Communication Disorders at UMass Amherst is hosting the 4th Annual Walk and Roll for Aphasia. Aphasia is a language disorder brought about by brain damage, most often following a stroke.  It can impair the ability to use or understand spoken or written language. It can greatly limit a person’s participation in social, vocational, or recreational activities. The event will take place in Sweetser Park located in downtown Amherst on Main Street (across from the Amherst Police Station) on Saturday, April 20th.  Check in begins at 10:00am.  A minimum $10 donation is required. The 2.6 mile walk, which will start at 11:00am, will occur rain or shine.  Afterwards, a raffle for gift cards and other prizes will take place. All funds and donations from this event will benefit the department’s aphasia research, outreach, and social services.
