The 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 Associations, and alliance organizations who help extend HLAA’s mission into local communities.
Gallaudet Student Academy of Audiology is dedicated to educating our membership and the surrounding community about hearing loss, highlighting the experiences of the Deaf and Hard of Hearing Community, and promoting accessibility and communication access across every environment.
We are participating in the Walk4Hearing this year in order to share experiences, learn from one another, make memories, and take steps toward hearing loss awareness and 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.
Did you know that one in seven Americans are living with some degree of 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.
It all starts right here in our own community with generous people like you, who are willing to step up and support us!
Can we count on you?
