I attended the Walk for Hearing Kickoff in Houston, Texas with my mom and dad at PrimaPasta.
I believe a great time was had by all. This kickoff was created to stir up excitement for our upcoming walk at Tom Bass Park on November 7, 2009.
It is for a very good cause-Hearing Loss Association www.hearingloss.org Hearing loss is a growing national problem, yet only 20% of people do something about their hearing loss! That is sad indeed. There are many reason why people do not do nothing. Some of the most popular reasons are people feel like their is no help, or there is to much misunderstanding, or they are in denial! and they do not think they have a hearing problem.
The event began at 2:00 with an excellent lunch catered by PrimaPasta to include salad, spaghetti and meatballs, and tiramasu! Which was absolutely devine! During our meal, we had a chance to catch up with others, while there was an awesome slide show in the background of our 2008 walk.
Once we concluded our meal, Ray Wathen was Master of Ceremonies, and he presented our program. It began witha short video of our National Walk, next Ray introduced our presenters such as our sponsors, Max McCarthy from Hearing Systems and Nabeel from WindStar Energy. Then, Lois Johnson our newly elected Texas State Officer gave a short presentation about the Houston Walk to include how to participate, set up your “Walk Page” and fund-raising.
There was alot of excitement in the air at the conclusion of the presentation. We all picked up “Walk for Hearing” materials and did some last minute visiting.
I had a great time and I hope you come out and participate in the Walk on Nov 7, 2009, go to my walk page at http://hlaa.convio.net/goto/smdussling to findout more, participate and /or make a donation.
