Since Michael Kidd-Gilchrist arrived at Kentucky, fans came to learn about the speech impediment that MKG grew up with, where he dealt with a stuttering issue.
Now it seems MKG wants to help children who have the same issue. He has founded the Change and Impact Initiative for Stuttering, which aims to help those dealing with the same issues he has faced.
“What I want the public to know about those who stutter is that we are no different,” Kidd-Gilchrist said. “When you fall you get up, and you’re going to fall again, and you’re going to get back up. That is the type of example I want to set and show to my family, my friends and the public eye about those who stutter.”
The organization aims to help improve access to healthcare and expand services and resources for those with stuttering issues.
MKG is one of the more beloved former Cats of the recent era, and hopefully the BBN will get behind this new venture. It’s certainly a worthy cause.
Best of luck to him as he aims to help others! Follow along on Instagram at @change_and_impact.
