"I cannot think of a better way to spend the day on a beautiful walk through New York City to bring attention to hearing health. I am quite proud to be involved in this wonderful event sponsored by HLAA, an organization that has dedicated their efforts towards hearing health care for more than 40 years."

Nikki Kramer

Since 2013, Nikki participated at the New York City Walk4Hearing and raised $34,000 to support HLAA and local organizations. She wears bilateral hearing aids and is an active athlete in basketball and softball. In 2019, Nikki appeared on Good Morning America to help reveal American Girl Doll of the Year, Joss Kendrick.

Nikki is proud to walk and support the community. She says, "it's important to me to raise funds to support other kids like me with hearing loss." She looks forward to seeing others like her and meeting them on Walk Day!
