I do this walk in honor of my two nephews, both born profoundly deaf, and have bi-lateral cochlear implants. They've always received the support they needed, and it's proceeds from events like this that help make that possible !
The Hearing Loss Association of America (HLAA) Walk4Hearing increases awareness about hearing loss, helps to eradicate the stigma associated with it and raises funds to provide information and support for people with hearing loss. Since 2006, the Walk4Hearing has raised more than $9 million and has become the largest walk for hearing taking place in cities across the United States.
