HLAA Arizona Walk4Hearing and You: Coming Together to End the Stigma of Hearing Loss

BETHESDA, Md.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–#ArizonaW4H–The Hearing
Loss Association of America
(HLAA) invites you to Riverview
Park
on November 12, 2016 for the Arizona
Walk4Hearing
, a family-friendly event that raises awareness about
hearing loss and issues a call
to action
to eradicate the stigma associated with hearing loss and
encourage people to advocate for communication access. The Walk will
welcome more than 400 walkers who will step up for the 48 million
Americans with hearing loss in the United States.

The fundraising goal for the 2016 Walk4Hearing
program is $1.4 million, which supports programs and services for people
with hearing loss and their families. Money raised is shared between the
national organization and local Walks through HLAA’s Alliance program.
At the national level, money raised goes to support advocacy to affect
legislation that impacts people with hearing loss, such as Medicare to
allow hearing aid coverage. At the local level, money raised goes toward
college scholarships, providing captioning and hearing assistive
technologies in meetings, and funding for hearing aids.
