Walk4Hearing is an annual event sponsored by the Hearing Loss Association of America (HLAA). It's a 5K (3.1 mile) walk. 40% of funds raised by you go to the Acoustic Neuroma Association.
Walk4Hearing is the largest walk of its kind taking place in multiple cities across the country. Thousands of walkers - children and their families, young adults, young at heart and everyone in between - form teams and walk in their communities to increase public awareness about hearing loss, help eradicate the stigma associated with it and raise funds for programs and services.

Who should attend? Family members, caregivers, friends and interested persons are encouraged to attend.Benefits of attending a local support group include communicating in a nurturing, non-judgmental environment with others who have shared a common acoustic neuroma experience; sharing information on dealing with specific problems, overcoming handicaps and reassuring others that better times lie ahead; educating and informing each other about the latest acoustic neuroma topics of interest; and providing emotional support to all patients, both pre- and post-treatment. This helps in reducing the isolation and loneliness that many acoustic neuroma patients feel.
