Event Details

The Heels for Words   project began as a class project led by the Oklahoma State University Communication Sciences and Disorders graduate class of 2013. The primary goal of the Heels for Words project is to raise awareness of aphasia.

Aphasia is an impairment of language that limits a person’s ability to understand, speak, read and write. It occurs as a result of brain injury, such as stroke, head trauma, brain tumors, or infections. While aphasia can steal words, it does
not affect intelligence or competence.

This year’s fundraiser will support Cowboy Aphasia Camp at OSU-Tulsa which offers a treatment experience for people with aphasia . We hope to build a bridge between those with aphasia and the community in which they live. We believe that this can lead to more meaningful lives for both those challenged by aphasia and members of the community. Through participation in Heels for Words, you are helping taking steps to raise awareness of aphasia!

Heels for Words 2013 will take place on Saturday April 13, 2013, at Oklahoma State University – Tulsa Campus. Registration begins at 8:00 am, and the walk will begin at 9:00 am.  Participants may choose between two trails: ½ mile, and 1.5 miles. High heeled shoes are encouraged, but not mandatory, for both women and men. Participants opting to complete the 1.5 mile trail in high heels will be eligible for a prize drawing following the walk. Snacks and water will be provided.

*Must register by March 29 in order to guarantee t-shirt availability
