Christy and Friends

2024 Twin Cities Walk4Hearing

Together, we’re bringing hope to hearing loss.

Welcome to our team page for the Hearing Loss Association of America’s (HLAA) Walk4Hearing!  I’ve created the Christy and Friends walking team because as a person who has struggled with hearing loss most of my life, I feel it is important to educate and advocate for  people who have or are losing their hearing  so they can find ways to participate fully in our society. 

 Since 2006, the Walk has been the largest awareness event of HLAA to raise funds for education, advocacy, and support. It is our community of support in action, breaking down barriers to hearing health and empowering people with hearing loss nationwide.

Currently, 1 in 7 Americans is impacted by some level of hearing loss, and 1 billion young people are at risk for noise-induced hearing loss. It is an often-ignored part of overall health, and that number is expected to double by 2050. HLAA is working hard to ensure every American receives the help they need to live well with hearing loss. We need your help to bring attention to better hearing health and increase access to hearing care.

You can make an impact by donating to a team member or joining our team!

Every step we take empowers people with hearing loss.
