This past weekend we were proud to be a part of Cincinnati’s Walk4Hearing, is a nationwide 5K walk to support those who are suffering from hearing loss. Since it was formed in 2006, the organization has raised over $9 million to go towards programs and services for those with hearing loss. This walk alone has raised over $25,500 through runners and sponsors.
We were happy to not only be a part of the event, but also be a part of making the runners’ day a little brighter with our fun props and photo strips! Participants included family and friends of those effected, as well as schools and local businesses. Their website states the following regarding earloss:
• 48 million Americans have some form of hearing loss
• 26 million Americans have noise-induced hearing loss that could have been prevented
• 2 to 3 out of every 1,000 children are born deaf or with a hearing loss
• 60 percent of the people with hearing loss are either in the work force or in educational settings
For more information or to contact them, you can visit their website or check them out on Facebook. It is a great organization that aims to not only raise money for their programs, but also to raise awareness for those affected. Clear Choice Photo Booth was happy to be a part of such a great benefit and event!
