Funds raised through the Walk4Hearing have supported these local groups and activities:
We are one of a series of national walks that, to date, has raised awareness and more than $6 million for important programs and services benefiting the hearing impaired. May is National Hearing Month, and our walk has been officially recognized as “Walk for Hearing Day.” Thanks to the support of National sponsors, local sponsors, walkers and volunteers, walkers and others, we are able to help fund a variety of important local, state and national services. Hundreds of walkers from throughout the metropolitan area will join us and, for the first time, we have formally added Rockland County to the local Walk4Hearing.

Most deaf or hard of hearing people do not receive the help they need in terms of equipment, services, and financial or emotional support. For example, studies show that 80% of hearing impaired people who could benefit from hearing aids do not receive them due to lack of funds, lack of information or other factors. Others live in social isolation, underemployment or unemployment, or face other major obstacles because of hearing loss and related communication difficulties.
