"My wife is an audiologist. She gets to feed her passion every day, helping people hear better. There's nothing that makes her happier than helping people hear and making a difference in their lives. If walking in the Walk4Hearing can help raise awareness for even one person to find resources or a person like my wife to improve their lives, then I’m all for it!"
–Brian Y., Washington DC Walk4Hearing
The HLAA Walk4Hearing is a national program that reaches out to more than 48 million people with hearing loss, their families, friends, and hearing health professionals to educate and raise awareness about hearing loss, good hearing health, and communication access.
Celebrating its 15th anniversary, the Walk4Hearing has welcomed over 105,000 walkers and 9,200 teams since 2006. Whether you think you have a hearing loss, want to support someone who does, or if you have been living with hearing loss for some time, the Walk4Hearing is for you! We want to show you that you are not alone.
"We participate in the Walk4Hearing to help raise awareness and make an impact in our son’s future as well as for the Deaf and hearing impaired community as a whole!"
–Team Nathaniel, Connecticut Walk4Hearing
The Walk4Hearing is about sharing an experience, making memories, and taking the first step toward better hearing health. Participating in a Walk4Hearing means connecting with thousands of people across the country with the same goals – to bring greater awareness to the challenges facing people with hearing loss, to educate the community about the value of hearing health and to raise funds to help support resources for the hearing loss community.
"I walk for my son and HEAR-Os like him who overcome challenges daily without even knowing it. I walk for families of those with hearing loss to show that so much good can come after a diagnosis. We love our HEAR-O, Gavin!"
–Rachel S., San Diego Walk4Hearing
