Since 2006, thousands of people nationwide have joined the effort to end the stigma associated with hearing loss and provide support and resources for hearing loss prevention and education programs through the Walk4HearingTM.
The Walk4HearingTM , produced by The Hearing Loss Association of America (HLAA), is the largest series of walks of its kind, held in the spring and fall in major cities throughout the U.S. Walk4Hearing is one of the most visible hearing-related events in the country that brings together consumers, industry, service providers, and advocates that work for and with people with hearing loss. Walk4Hearing has become one of the most enthusiastic volunteer outreach programs of HLAA bringing together hundreds of volunteers coast-to-coast.
For 2009, HLAA has set a fundraising goal of $1 million dollars. To help HLAA reach this goal find a walk near you today!
