HLAA Walk4Hearing National Co-Chairs

We’re thrilled to have Robert Engelke and Brandon Sawalich as Co-Chairs of the 2023 HLAA Walk4Hearing. These respected industry leaders are bringing their voices and support to our mission to achieve better hearing for the growing number of Americans with, or at risk, of hearing loss.

They invite you to form an individual or company team, raise funds, and join Walk Day events where you can learn about hearing technologies, how to address hearing loss and connect with others experiencing hearing loss and their families.

Robert Engelke President CapTel

“Each year Walk4Hearing events across the county provide the opportunity to raise awareness and funds for hearing loss concerns. CapTel is proud to support Walk4Hearing every year in its mission to increase access for people with hearing loss. Attending a Walk4Hearing event is a great way to connect with other families on a local level, learn about new technology and support one another through the journey of hearing loss. It is an honor to attend these events and we invite you to join the movement for hearing health!”
