On November 11, the Adult Loss of Hearing Association (ALOHA) participated in the Second Annual Hearing Loss Association of America (HLAA) Arizona Walk4Hearing to bring national, state and local attention to the 48 million Americans who have significant hearing loss. It was an outstanding day in Mesa’s beautiful Riverview Park! ALOHA’s team of 29 human walkers and two service canines marveled at all of the individuals, families and companies that participated in this important advocacy event. Students from the University of Arizona’s Department of Speech, Hearing and Language joined the ALOHA team again this year to walk and raise funds for HLAA, a portion of which returns to Tucson to aid in education about hearing loss and technology. Once again, the ALOHA team of Southern Arizonans and Wildcats was the Number #1 fundraising team, bringing in over $3,000 in support of the Walk4Hearing. Donations can still be made online at hlaa.convio.net – click on “Donate”, “Find a Walk” (Arizona, November 11th), “Team”: ALOHA, and choose a captain or walker. Donations may also be sent to ALOHA, 4001 E. Ft. Lowell Road, Tucson, AZ 85712. For additional information, call ALOHA at 520-795-9887, email email@example.com or text 202-285-1340.
