Labor Day has come and gone, fall is just around the corner. Therefore, that means one thing, The Houston Walk for Hearing is fast approaching.
This will be my second year to participate in the Walk on November 7, 2009 at Tom Bass Park in Pearland.
I had a blast doing the walk last year, we raised a ton of money and a great time was had by all who attended and/or participated in the walk.
This walk is sponsored by the Hearing Loss Association of America at www.hearingloss.org . Hearing loss affects over 36 million people, yet only 20% of people do something about their hearing loss. It is a shame that more people do not seek help for their hearing loss. This organization provides support for people that are hard of hearing and they also do lots of advocacy work. It is an awesome organization. I am proud to be a member of this organization.
Here is a short video of the walk for hearing in action:
The Walk helps us raise money for both the national organization and the local chapter.
So, come on out, have fun, and learn more about hearing loss on November 7, 2009.
By the way, I also created my own personal walk page at
Be a part of my team and/or make a donation to a worthwhile organization.
As always, Have a sunny day Susanna
