Indiana State Rep. Brian Bosma to serve as Master of Ceremonies
INDIANAPOLIS, May 2 /PRNewswire/ -- Over 300 runners and walkers will converge in Indianapolis once again for the annual Talk*Walk*Run (5K or 2.3 mile) on Saturday, May 10, 2008 8:00 a.m. -- 1:00 p.m. at Fort Harrison State Park at 6002 N Post Rd., Indianapolis, IN 46216.
Indiana State Representative Brian Bosma will officiate as Master of Ceremonies. In 1999, Rep. Bosma championed legislation in which hearing screening became mandatory for all Indiana newborns.
"We are thrilled to have Rep. Bosma officiate this year's race," said Naomi Horton, Executive Director for Hear Indiana.
"In 1999, Rep. Bosma, co-authored House Bill 1410, which enabled hearing loss to be identified before babies even leave the hospital. Children who receive appropriate early intervention before six months of age have language skills comparable to their hearing peers by the time they reach first grade, if not earlier."
"Today we live in a dynamic age in medicine and it's my pleasure to
help organizations like Hear Indiana help deaf and hard of hearing
children," Brian Bosma said. "I hope many Hoosiers will join me at Fort
Harrison State Park to run or walk for this wonderful cause."
