We would like to encourage you to support the Hearing Loss Association of America and its New York City chapter by joining our team for the NYC Walk4Hearing at 9 a.m. on September 23rd in Riverside Park at 97th Street.
The Walk4Hearing rallies communities across the country to create awareness about hearing health. Walk day is a chance for you to meet others with hearing loss, their families and supporters, learn from each other, and have fun.
By joining the Walk New York! Team you are helping support the activities of the local chapter as well as those of the national organization. HLAA is at the forefront of advocacy with respect to public policy, public awareness, and program delivery related to hearing loss. The portion of contributions that goes to the NYC chapter is crucial for the continuation of its programs, which include captioned and looped monthly meetings which are both educational and fun. Advocacy by the local chapter has benefited thousands of New Yorkers with hearing loss by providing support for hearing-looped venues and captioned Broadway performances and movie screenings.
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. And, if you are motivated, take charge of your own hearing health or encourage someone you know to get their hearing screened.
