Did you know that one in seven Americans are living with hearing loss?
Walk4Hearing is the only nationwide event bringing attention to hearing loss and promoting the importance of hearing health. Hearing is an important part of overall health and 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.
Why I’m Stepping Up for Hearing Health
As many of you know, I was born with a atresia/microtia and therefore have a unilateral hearing loss. "Courtney's Crew has been participating in the NYC Walk4Hearing for many years and I want to continue this tradition. This will be the second year that I will walk at the University of San Francisco as I will be back at college on the walk day. This walk is so important to me as it raises money and awareness to all living with a hearing loss. Hearing loss effects people from birth to 100 years old and it certainly has an impact on our lives. Please consider making a donation and/or walking with our team.
Walk4Hearing is about raising awareness, sharing an experience, connecting with the community and taking the first step toward better hearing health. Participating in the Walk means joining thousands of people across the country and right in our neighborhoods who understand what it’s like to live with hearing loss.
