Did you know that one outof ten people has a hearing loss? Chances are you know a few people with some degreeof hearing loss. Untreated hearing lossaffects overall health in negative ways – falls, isolation, anxiety, depression,and now, a link between untreated hearing loss and cognitive decline. Manypeople age into their hearing loss while they are still in the workforce. Hearing loss can be prevented, screened for, andtreated. The HLAA Walk4Hearing brings people together in communities to createawareness about hearing loss.
Since 2006, the HLAA Walk4Hearinghas raised more than $13 million and has become the largest walk for hearing health.
Why I Walk
I participatein the Walk4Hearing because I want others to know that they are not alone andsomething can be done to live well with hearing loss no matter what age orlevel of hearing. I am motivated by being part of a larger mission as well asenjoying the camaraderie, meeting others who have hearing loss – their familyand friends – learning from others, visiting the exhibit tables, all in my owncommunity. And, ultimately, it’s fun for everyone!
