Sponsors of the Walk4Hearing come together with our participants, HLAA Chapters, and alliance organizations to raise awareness about hearing loss and educate people about the importance of hearing health. Through Walk4Hearing, these partners showcase their generosity, dedication, and engagement with communities across the country.
These valuable partners extend our reach and support for millions of people living with hearing loss and inform many more people about hearing health and how they can protect their hearing. They share information about hearing assistive technologies, connect you with hearing health professionals, and provide services benefiting people with hearing loss and their families.
With our combined passion for the cause, we can do more to bring hearing health out front and help everyone at all stages of their hearing journey feel confident and empowered to overcome challenges and support one another.
