Renowned journalist and commentator John Stossel joined the Stuttering Foundation at tonight's (May 8th) gala in New York to celebrate National Stuttering Awareness Week and the Foundation's 65th Anniversary as the world's leading charitable organization helping those who stutter.

"John has been a long-time friend of the Foundation and a true champion for people who stutter. He readily admits that stuttering is still a concern for him and shows his courage every evening as he faces the camera," said Jane Fraser, president of the nonprofit organization.

Fraser presented Stossel with the Foundation's "Converting Awareness into Action" Award.

"Awareness is really nothing without action – it involves a willingness to inspire others," Fraser said. "This award is symbolic of John's dedication over many years to helping those who stutter."

Also receiving recognition for their contributions to the stuttering community were recording artist Francois Goudreault, Jr., of the band Hello Kelly, author/actor/playwright Scott Damian, and New York Jets cornerback Ellis Lankster.

During the past year, the understanding of stuttering increased dramatically with the Oscar-winning movie, The King's Speech. The Foundation, building upon this, is converting awareness into action throughout its 65th year, reaching people in 136 countries around the world.

Malcolm Fraser, a successful businessman who stuttered, went on to establish and endow the nonprofit Stuttering Foundation in 1947. The Stuttering Foundation provides a toll-free helpline, 800-992-9392, and free online resources on its Website, www.StutteringHelp.org, including services, referrals and support to people who stutter and their families, as well as support for research into the causes of stuttering.
