“We got involved with the inaugural Walk4Hearing three years ago and knew immediately it was a natural fit for our philanthropic efforts,” commented Rector. “In addition to raising money we’ve also had the privilege of providing our Hearing Loop and RF Assistive Listening solutions at their events. It’s rewarding to know that an event like the Walk4Hearing can make such a difference.”
Money raised will be used in communities across the country to fund communication access with CART, to pay for installation of hearing assistive technology in public places, to fund scholarships for college, outreach efforts, and more exciting projects. All programs and services are with a goal of creating awareness, helping people understand hearing loss prevention, and eradicating the stigma associated with hearing loss.
