BENEFITING: Hearing Health Foundation
ORGANIZER: Hearing Health Foundation
EVENT DATE: Nov 02, 2014
I am running the TCS NYC Marathon on November 2nd with one goal in mind:
To raise as much money as possible and accelerate the pace of HHF’s research that will lead to a cure for hearing loss and tinnitus (buzzing or ringing in the ears) in our lifetime.
As the CEO of Hearing Health Foundation, and the child of parent with hearing loss, I am dedicated to doing whatever I can to help accelerate the pace of the research to a cure for hearing loss and tinnitus in my lifetime.
And, as the mother of two children who are unintentionally exposed to dangerously high levels of noise on a daily basis, I want to make sure they understand the importance of always protecting their hearing. In fact, I am laser-focused on educating as many people as possible about protection for the prevention of noise-induced hearing loss.
Hearing Health Foundation has been an important influence in hearing loss and balance research for more than 50 years. Today, with our Hearing Restoration Project, a collaborative research consortium comprised of leading scientists, we are closer than ever to a cure.
Please support me as I run for the 50 million women, men, teens, and children in the U.S. who are living with hearing loss and tinnitus.
