Family and friends,
Thank you for checking out my personal fundraising page. As you may know, our youngest daughter was diagnosed with hearing loss in both of her ears shortly after birth. We are proud to participate in this walk to support her and so many others who also have hearing loss. This is our fourth year participating in the Connecticut Walk4Hearing with Karlee's Krew!
Here's a message from Karlee:
Hi! I'm Karlee. Thank you so much for visiting my team's Connecticut Walk4Hearing page!
I'm three years old and exploring all sorts of new things. My ears don't work quite the same as most people's do, so that's why I wear two pretty pink hearing aids. I've been wearing them since I was just ten weeks old and they're making a huge difference for me. I'm now in preschool and learning so much every day. I love talking. Some of my favorite phrases are, "Thank you!", "You are most welcome!", and "That is terrible!"
I'm really looking forward to this year's Walk4Hearing. I would love it if you would support my team. Money raised by my team members will benefit the Hearing Loss Association of America and Connecticut Hands & Voices, which is a wonderful organization that empowers families of children like me. My mommy serves on the Connecticut Hands & Voices board of directors.
Thank you so much for helping out the cause and supporting my team, Karlee's Krew!
Here's more information about the Walk4Hearing:
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 $12 million and has become the largest walk for hearing loss taking place in cities across the United States.
