9th Annual Walk2Hear for Persons with a Hearing Loss

Accessibility Update: CART and ASL interpreters will be provided at Walk2Hear on Sunday, September 22nd!

Did you know that hearing loss is the number one disability among Canadians? In fact, one in five people are affected by hearing loss.

CHHA Vancouver Branch is a consumer-based, non-profit, self-help organization working with hard of hearing consumers and their support networks to decrease isolation and remove barriers to hearing loss by providing: supportive environments, education, resources, referrals, and advocacy. CHHA works cooperatively with professionals, service providers, government bodies, and provides information about hard of hearing issues and solutions.

Please help us raise funds for our activities and join us in our annual Walk2Hear to connect with each other and to enjoy a 2 km or a 5 km walk together. Following the walk, there will be a presentation and prizes will be awarded. CART and ASL interpreters will be provided. This is our Ninth Annual Walk2Hear!
