What’s the point of the walk? To increase public awareness about hearing loss, help eradicate the stigma associated with it and raise funds for programs and services.
You most likely know of someone with a hearing loss. About 20 percent of Americans, 48 million, report some degree of hearing loss. Remember hearing loss can affect anyone; doesn’t matter your race, age, or social economic background.
