Welcome to Cymantha's 2017 Walk4Hearing page. This year will be our 5th year walking with STRIVRIGHT. Cymantha is in her final year with her school before being mainstreamed to Kindergarten. We would like to continue to spread the word out as much as possible on raising funds and educating others on hearing loss. Since last year, Cymantha has progressed so well and enjoyed her first full year as a preschooler, making new friends and meeting new teachers. She is now learning to recognize two to three letter words and sounding them out. She continues to blossom with her upbeat personality and love for music. Thank you for all your continued support. If you can join us again we would love to see you there. Donations are always welcomed and spreading the word is always appreciated. Thank you all!!!!

We walk because hearing loss is a public health issue third in line after heart disease and arthritis.
- 48 million people have some form of hearing loss
- 26 million people have noise-induced hearing loss that could have been prevented
- 2 to 3 out of every 1,000 children are born deaf or with a hearing loss
- 60 percent of the people with hearing loss are either in the work force or in educational settings
Hearing loss affects one's ability to communicate every day in different situations - from a dinner conversation at a noisy restaurant, on the phone, to not hearing alarm clocks and smoke alarms. For people with hearing loss, these situations can be become obstacles without the right information and support. HLAA provides the assistance and resources for people with hearing loss and their families to learn how to adjust to living with hearing loss.
