Hearoes for Hearing is the non-profit philanthropy of the University of Florida National Student Speech-Language and Hearing Association (NSSLHA). Our charity directly benefits patients in the UF Health Cochlear Implant Program. This November Hearoes is hosting our first ever Virtual Turkey Trot benefiting the Hearoes Batteries Bash! The mission of the Batteries Bash initiative is to raise funds for patients at the UF Health Hearing Center for hearing aid and cochlear implant batteries.

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 for the UF Cochlear Implant Fund 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.
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! In 2019 and 2020, we raised over $13,000 and had roughly 750 attendees at our events. Thanks to our incredible, dedicated participants, Hearoes for Hearing continues to grow every year! Although this year looks different, our goal is to continue to create diverse events and provide a community for the patients and families. We hope you decide to join our cause in supporting the local hearing loss community.
