The Walk4Hearing is important because it helps to bring awareness of hearing loss issues to the public and raises funds to support and improve accessibility for children and adults with hearing loss. Recent national statistics show that more than 48 million Americans experience some degree of hearing loss; in Tennessee that approximate figure is 425,000 and in the greater Chattanooga area, 40,000. Over a five-year period, HLAA Chattanooga Walk4Hearing raised more than $125,000 in support of people with hearing loss.
