Walk4Hearing is the only nationwide event bringing attention to hearing loss and promoting the importance of hearing health. Funds raised support HLAA’s national awareness and education programs, HLAA Chapters and State Organizations, and alliances who help extend HLAA’s mission into local communities.
Since 2006, the Walk4Hearing has raised $16 million to fund programs from more than 1,750 alliance organizations. We’ve welcomed 107,000 people at 285 Walks with participation from over 750 HLAA Chapter and State Organizations.
Participating in the Walk4Hearing means joining thousands of people across the country and right in our neighborhoods, who understand what it’s like to live with hearing loss. Hearing is an important part of overall health and the Walk4Hearing calls on all of us to take action. By being active, engaged, and making hearing health a priority, people with hearing loss can live well. Let’s Hear Now and Be Well Together.
To extend our reach into local communities, Walk4Hearing partners with HLAA Chapters, State Organizations, and other nonprofits who share our commitment to hearing health and supporting people with hearing loss. Below, you will discover the impact these groups offer.

“The Walk4Hearing is an incredibly fun and memorable day for us. Our family and friends plan to attend for years to come. Raising funds and receiving encouragement from so many friends and new supporters meant the world to us.”
