Description

Hearoes for Hearing is the University of Florida’s National Student Speech-Language and Hearing Association (NSSLHA) philanthropy. This is our organization’s charity that directly benefits cochlear implant patients at the UF Health Speech and Hearing Center. This year Hearoes will be hosting our very first Hearoes for Hearing Relay Race!  We hope you will join us and will bring along your friends to learn more about our cause! 

According to the American Speech-Language Hearing Association, approximately 28 million Americans have a hearing impairment. The purpose of Hearoes for Hearing is to raise money to help purchase new test materials and therapy materials in the speech department for habilitation and rehabilitation, audiological tests, and provide loaner equipment for both the children and adult patients. Additionally, we strive to spread awareness about hearing loss throughout the Gainesville community.  

Registration will be open February 1st though March 23rd. The pricing is as follows: $20 for adults $10 for children until February 28th. $25 for adults $15 for children as of March 22nd with no shirt included. Day of $30 for adults and $15 children with no shirt included.

In 2017, we raised over $9,000 and had over 250 participants at our annual 5k. In 2018, we raised $16,982 and had 316 participants at our 5k! Thanks to the incredible, dedicated participants, Hearoes for Hearing continues to grow every year! This year our goal is to create diverse events and prepare for our 5k in Spring 2020.  We hope you decide to join our cause in supporting the local hearing loss community.
