BENEFITING: STARKEY HEARING FOUNDATION
EVENT DATE: Sep 27, 2014
Combining the efforts of Swim To Hear and So They World May Hear Foundation, on September 27th Ryan Bullock will attempt to defend his title in the Swim With the Centurions - Alcatraz.
His swim will benefit the Starkey Hearing Foundation which travels the globe delivering the gift of hearing to thousands of people each year who would otherwise live in the isolation of a silent world. Providing hearing care alone does not completely dissolve the psychological barriers that continue to cause many of these children and adults to believe they are limited in ability. We stand firmly behind the belief that there is no such thing as disability, only ability. This belief guides each and every interaction we have with patients in the field.
The gift of hearing opens up a whole new world of opportunity. It connects individuals to life and helps them realize they can accomplish more than they ever thought possible. Hearing aids are important tools, but we really strive to empower the people we help toward a better life and leave them with the knowledge that they too can improve the lives of others.
