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.
Why Do I Walk?
- I walk because 3 in 1000 children are born with hearing loss in the United States.
- I walk because an estimated 1 in 5 American teenagers experiences some degree of hearing loss due to recreational noise exposure.
- I walk for my aging family members because untreated hearing loss increases the incidence of depression and dementia.
Hearing loss, at any age, significantly impacts the quality of life by affecting communication with loved ones. Please help raise awareness and funds- join us!
