Monica represented the EAR Lab at the Long Beach, CA Walk4Hearing on Saturday, June 11th. It was an unusually cold day, with lots of people including myself amazed at the California rain (drizzle) showing up. Since last year, the route has changed to go around the beachfront, making it a little more challenging. Instead of walking around the shops, the walk covers a really nice path along the ocean. Walk4Hearings around the country are chosen to represent the best of the local area; a path along the ocean is perfect to represent southern California.
Plenty of food, snacks and drinks for everybody were provided at the beginning and the end of the walk. Many companies and organizations were there to show support.
People of all ages and families supporting their loved ones were present, because hearing loss can affect anybody at any age.
The Walk4Hearing is the most important fundraising event for the Hearing Loss Association of America (HLAA). The HLAA of course is an important cause near and dear to our hearts at EAR Lab. Additionally, for the EAR Lab, the Walk4Hearing is an excellent chance to catch up with people we have known for several years and a chance to meet some amazing new people. Monica is already looking forward to next year’s Long Beach walk.
A bunch of Walk4Hearing events will take place in other parts of the country in the Fall.
This is where we provide updates from the lab
