Having a Blast at Walk4Hearing!

It was a beautiful day to celebrate and experience Walk4Hearing in Long Beach. We had a great turnout and smiles as everyone got a chance to enjoy the festivities, catch up with people they haven’t seen in a while, make new friends, and get informed with technologies and services supporting the hearing loss community.

A big highlight of the event was the Oticon hearing aids giveaway graciously set up by Zina Jawadi. Marissa Acosta ended up winning the hearing aids. She entered because her young niece, Olivia, who was just diagnosed with hearing loss, needed a pair of hearing aids! Marissa and family couldn’t believe it and felt truly blessed and plan to make the Walk an annual tradition! Sometimes the Walk isn’t just about walking, but the lifetime memories and stories that come from the event.

See you all next year!

The Walk4Hearing in Long Beach provides an opportunity for individuals with hearing loss, their families, and the broader community to come together, raise awareness about hearing loss, and advocate for equal access to communication and support services. It is a chance to celebrate the accomplishments and strengths of those with hearing loss while also addressing the challenges they face.
