Sponsor the "Woodland Walkers" for the Walk4Hearing
This year the California Walk4Hearing is being held in Southern California at Long Beach. The goal of the Walk4Hearing is to increase the awareness about the causes and consequences of hearing loss and to raise funds to provide information and support for people with hearing loss. In addition, your local chapter of the Hearing Loss Association of America [HLAA] , HEAR! HERE! recieves a percentage of each donation made in its name for use at the local level. Last year, as a direct result of generous contributions, the chapter received $600.0, which enabled us to defray a portion of the costs of offering free hearing tests to over 100 pre-school children.
Although we will not send a team down to Long Beach we have a team called the "Woodland Walkers" created to support the Walk4Hearing and to raise funds needed to expand our free hearing testing for pre-school children. Good hearing skills are critical in the developing of a child's social and emotional growth, reading readiness skills and pre-math education. Won't you help us provide this essential service. Simply click onto our team page at: http://hlaa.convio.net/site/TR/Teamraiser/2009LongBeachWalk?team_id=14380&pg=team&fr_id=1600 and select the team captain as the person you wish to sponsor.
Any amount large or small helps.
Thank you for you support!
