A partnership with the Walk4Hearing connects companies to consumers in an active and impactful way. Without the support of our sponsors the Walk4Hearing would not be able to continue walking across the country year after year. These organizations are our most dedicated benefactors, giving of their time, energy, and effort. With our combined passion for the cause, we can do more to help everyone – in all stages of their hearing journey – feel empowered to manage their hearing health.
