Walk for Hearing KickOff Houston

100_0253abHello Everyone

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.

As always, Have a sunny day! Susanna

Houston Walk 4 Hearing 2009

Hello Everyone

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
