This is my 4th year as Captain for the Long Beach/Lakewood Chapter's Walk4Hearing team! I've been doing this since Kindergarten. Last year we did really good and raised a lot of money for HLAA and the Chapter. But the best part is the fun we have at the Walk. My whole family and some friends and cousins and people in the Chapter come walk with me (I like to run the 3 miles!).
I still have my Dodger Blue hearing aids. This year my teacher and I use an FM system to help me hear better in class. She wears the microphone around her neck and what she says goes directly into my hearing aids. My hearing aids have "boots" that attach to them and that's how the sound from her microphone gets to my hearing aids. Sometimes she forgets to turn it off and I can hear her talking on the phone or to other teachers! When that happens, she looks at me and says, "You heard that, huh?!"
My team is Connor's Beach Buddies. I'm hoping you'll help me raise money for HLAA and for the Long Beach/Lakewood Chapter. Click on my team's name on the right so you can see what the Chapter does with the money they raise!
But most of all - Come walk with me!!!!
