Locally, the money raised through Walk4Hearing helps to provide programs, services or equipment to people with hearing loss, including college scholarships, camp fee assistance for children and adults with hearing loss, captioning of live theatre, meetings and events, registration fee assistance to national HLAA conventions, equipment to veterans with hearing loss, and looping initiatives.

The 8th Annual Walk4Hearing will be held on Saturday, May 14. The event is free, open to the public, and held rain or shine, at Chattanooga State Community College and adjoining Riverwalk. The accessible event will be captioned and interpreted.
