The Hearing Loss Association of America (HLAA) Walk4Hearing is the largest walk of its kind taking place in multiple cities across the country. Every spring and fall thousands of walkers - children and their families, young adults, young at heart and everyone in between - form teams and walk in their communities to increase public awareness about hearing loss, help eradicate the stigma associated with it and raise funds for programs and services.
Why We Walk?
We walk because hearing loss is a public health issue in the United States.
Many people do not know where to find information and support they need to adjust to living with hearing loss. When someone has a hearing loss it affects everyone they interact with - family, friends, co-workers, employers, neighbors - we all need to understand the impact of hearing loss and how to communicate with people with hearing loss.
it not too late to resinger for HLAA Walk for Hearing ...
