By joining team CART Attack, you do more than just contribute to a mission of providing information, education, support and advocacy for people with hearing loss. You bring a real-life awareness of those who are affected by hearing loss and how people like you and me can help make a difference in the lives of so many.
CART Attack is a team of CART captioners, court reporters and our friends and families that walk for better relationships. Come out and have fun!
The California Court Reporters Association [CCRA] should be a first stop for any Californian looking for CART services. CCRA is a place you can find qualified CART captioners and, it's a place where you can get a subsidy for captioning service, if you qualify.
Did you know that 1 in 10 people has a hearing loss? And 1 in 5 American teens experience some degree of hearing loss? Also, about 2 to 3 our of every 1,000 children in the U.S. are born with detectable hearing loss in both ears? Chances are you know a few people with some degree of hearing loss. Untreated hearing loss affects overall health in negative ways – falls, isolation, anxiety, depression, and now, a link between untreated hearing loss and cognitive decline. Many people age into their hearing loss while they are still in the workforce.
Hearing loss can be prevented, screened for, and treated. The HLAA Walk4Hearing brings people together in communities to create awareness about hearing loss.
Since 2006, the HLAA Walk4Hearing has raised more than $13 million and has become the largest walk for hearing health.
Take Charge of Your Hearing Health and Get Your Hearing Screened
The call to action of the 2018 Walk4Hearing is “Get Your Hearing Checked!” Take charge of your own hearing health (or encourage someone else) by getting a hearing screening! Follow HLAA Walk4Hearing on Twitter @Walk4Hearing and Tweet #screenURhearing to let us know that you got your hearing checked or encouraged someone else to do so.
I hope you can also join my Walk4Hearing team or support me by making a donation. And, if you are motivated, take charge of your own hearing health or encourage someone you know to get their hearing screened.
