Read the two articles written by Carol Loftus, our Walk for Hearing Chair, as they appeared in the April and May 2017 issues of our Chapter’s Newsletter.

Although it has been several months since the Rochester 2016 Walk4Hearing, once again, I would like to extend thanks to all sponsors, team captains, walkers and the numerous wonderful volunteers. Your support helped raise over $36,000.
I’ve been hopeful I would be sharing details of a Rochester 2017 Walk4Hearing. However, HLAA National has moved the 2017 Walk4Hearing to Buffalo. The date and Walk location (park site) will be determined soon.
We can all come together to support the Walk and, in particular, the Rochester Chapter. Our chapter will receive 40% of all donations ‘designated’ to our Chapter by team captains, walkers and those who choose to donate and not walk.
Team captains have started receiving emails from HLAA National announcing the new location. Please visit the HLAA National website for ongoing postings – www.hearingloss.org. And watch our Newsletters for updates.
Your support over the past 11 years has been tremendous. I look forward to learning that many of you will continue to support the Rochester Chapter. In particular, I hope to have many Rochester Walkers joining me in Buffalo. Happy Spring!
