Every spring and fall thousands of walkers children and their families, young adults, young at heart and everyone in between form teams and walk in their communities to increase public awareness about hearing loss and help eradicate the stigma associated with it.
Since 2006, more than 79,000 walkers have stepped up and raised over $12 million to support approximately 48 million people with hearing loss in the United States and funds national and local programs for people with hearing loss and their families.
Your efforts make it possible for us to provide support and resources to people with hearing loss on both a national and local level in a variety of ways:
The Hearing Loss Association of America® (HLAA), founded in 1979, opens the world of communication to people with hearing loss through information, education, support and advocacy. In addition to the Walk4Hearing, HLAA publishes the bimonthly Hearing Loss Magazine, holds annual conventions, hosts online learning with the Hearing Loss Support Specialist Training, and more. HLAA has chapters nationwide to support people with hearing loss. The national headquarters is located at 7910 Woodmont Avenue, Suite 1200, Bethesda, MD 20814. Phone: 301.657.2248.
