The 5th annual WalkRite for RiteCare was held at the Lincoln Children’s Zoo on a perfect Saturday morning on May 25th. Scottish Rite Masons, students from the Nebraska Student Speech-Language Hearing Society (NSSLHA) at UNL, RiteCare parents and families, and the Clinicians turned out for the Walk, which raised $2,000 for speech therapy through the Lincoln Scottish Rite Preservation Foundation.
Clinicians Holly Schlautman and Teagan Dinslage checked in families and presented them with WalkRite shirts. After a brief welcome by Teagan, a RiteCare parent shared her story of what speech therapy meant to her family. The walkers set off down the trail for a short walk around the Zoo, and enjoyed day passes to the Zoo afterward.
The Lincoln WalkRite for RiteCare is designed to be a family-friendly event that raises money, but also provides our RiteCare families with an easy, fun event for their families. If you would still like to donate, please visit https://www.ritecarene.org/lincoln to make a tax-deductible donation.
