ELMHURST – For the past four years the DiCianni family has sponsored the Brianna & Friends Walk to Trot, but this year, they've renamed the event.

The first annual Talkie Trot will feature a 5K run and walk along with a one-mile kids dash. The event raises funds and awareness for the Center for Speech and Language Disorders and those they serve.

The 5K begins at 9 a.m. Sept. 15 at York Road and South Street with the Kids' Dash starting at 9:45 a.m. Awards will be given to the top three men and women with the best time for the run and walk. The Jesse White Tumblers will also perform.

An after party at HB Jones, 551 E. Vallette St., will be held from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Reservations are recommended. The party includes music by Optical Distortion, a 50/50 cash raffle, food buffet and a drink.
