NYC WALK4HEARING CELEBRATES KICKOFF EVENT

New Yorkers Step Up & Walk for Hearing Loss

           

Volunteers, supporters and friends gathered to celebrate the Kickoff Event for the Hearing Loss Association of America’s (HLAA) annual New York City Walk4Hearing, which will take place on Sunday, September 27th in Riverside Park. Held at Battery Gardens, over 200 guests enjoyed an evening of refreshments and conversation followed by presentations to motivate and instruct team leaders, supporters and walkers. Speakers included: Commissioner Victor Calise, Mayor’s Office for People with Disabilities; Deputy Inspector Dan Carione, NYPD; Lisa Carling, Director of TDF Accessibility Programs, and Suzanne D’Amico, Northeast Region Walk4Hearing Coordinator.

 

            New Yorkers supporting the cause include families, friends, co-workers, students and others impacted by hearing loss. D’Amico, who has a 13-year-old daughter with genetic hearing loss, said, “The Kick Off Event was a great success bringing together our amazing volunteers and sponsors to celebrate the 10th Anniversary of the Walk4Hearing program.  This year, we hope to reach our fundraising goal of $175,000.”

 

Deputy Inspector Dan Carione, NYPD, who damaged his right ear in a shootout in  1966, shared his comments at the Kickoff event.  He is the first recognized hearing disabled Police Officer on the NYPD who has been placed back on the streets in full-duty capacity, after a long battle to regain his place on the police force.  He explained, “The Walk is an important step, because there is strength in numbers.  But those numbers count for little, if we don’t publicly show who we are and what we can do.  We are invisible no more.”

 

            Lisa Carling, Director of TDF Accessibility Programs, an event sponsor, addressed the importance of raising awareness in the theatre community about better access for people with hearing loss.  She said, “Thanks to the advocacy of the New York City Chapter, over the past 18 years, there are now more captioned performances on Broadway than ever before.  And today, by persuading more theaters to install looping systems, Broadway and Off Broadway are even more accessible.  We thank you all for putting a personal face on the issues surrounding hearing loss.”

 

New York City sponsors to date include: Metro Sound Pros; New York Relay; Theatre Development Fund; Total Caption; Weil Cornell Medical Center; Columbia University Medical Center; NYU Langone Medical Center; New York Eye and Ear Infirmary of Mount Sinai; New York-Presbyterian; Joe Gordon; Mill Neck Family of Organizations; Dr. Paul E. Hammerschlag;  CWA 1180;Children’s Hearing Institute; US Army, and Kantara Communications.

 

The New York City Walk4Hearing is one of 21 events happening across the nation this year.  Since its launch 10 years ago, the Walk4Hearing series has steadily gained momentum by raising more than $8.6 million, welcoming over 67,000 walkers, and creating partnerships with over 200 alliances.  It is the nation’s largest and fastest growing hearing loss fundraising and public awareness walk in the country.   Pre-register at  www.walk4hearing.org  Same-day registration is also available.

 

The Walk4Hearing was created by the Hearing Loss Association of America (HLAA) to raise awareness about hearing loss as a public health issue and to eradicate the stigma associated with it.  HLAA is the nation’s leading consumer membership and advocacy group for the 48 million Americans challenged by hearing loss.  Funds raised by the Walks in major cities support educational programs and services, critical national and local advocacy work.  For more information, visit www.hearingloss.org
