Hike For A Cause - Hike For Hearing!

Have you ever wondered what it would sound like to change a life? YOU can be a part of that change on Sunday, October 23rd at the University of Windsor’s Delta Zeta’s annual Hike For Hearing.

What is Hike For Hearing?  Hike For Hearing is a national charity walk that benefits the Starkey Hearing Foundation’s hearing aid recycling program for the Global South, and the hearing aid funding program for North America. This foundation is dedicated to bringing the gift of hearing to those who are living in a silent world, providing 200,000 free hearing aids and caring for those in need annually.

Did you know that in North America over 10% of the population suffers from hearing loss? In the U.S. alone, about 2-3 of every 1,000 children are born with hearing loss in one or both ears - and 15% of children over the age of six have hearing loss. Imagine what that number would be like on a global scale - hard to think about, right? Not being able to hear that popular song on the radio, the laughter of a loved one, or even the simplest sounds of nature, like the trees rustling in the wind. So many of the population are affected by hearing loss and this is just one small way we can try to make a difference in the lives of those living without hearing.

Where will the hike be taking place? The annual charity walk will take place along the Riverfront Festival Plaza from 11am-3pm in Windsor, Ontario. The cost of participating is $30 a person or $100 per team of ten - participants will receive a $10 gift certificate from Enzo's upon registration. There will be live music performances, barbecue, face painting, and so much more! To register for the hike, tickets can be purchased on the website linked below.

Together let’s change the lives of many through graciously giving the gift of hearing! https://www.eventbrite.ca/e/hike-for-hearing-tickets-25987469220
