Thank you for joining our team!

 

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 $10 million and has become the largest walk for hearing taking place in cities across the United States.

Why Walk?

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.

Team Live Better Hearing supports this cause by helping people live better, one ear at a time. If you, or someone you know, would like to schedule a free consulation, you can reach us at 888-HEAR-505. You can also find us at: LiveBetterHearing.com.
