The Hearing Loss Association of America’s annual Walk4Hearing on Saturday, October 25 was definitely the best I’ve ever participated in.  The weather was great, the turnout was awesome, and the camaraderie was terrific. I walked from beginning to end in good company with Kay Ellis and Diane Preece, got to chat a bit with NVRC Board member Eileen McCartin, and relished having the super PAH!  team alongside Team NVRC for much of our walk.

Katherine Pawlowski, who lives in Fairfax County is an ambassador for the Walk4Hearing. She also has a team “Friends of Fairfax County” which has raised money, some of which was is being shared with NVRC to provide services and events for children with hearing loss in the Fairfax County schools.

Team NVRC is very thankful for the generous walk donors who helped us raise $825, some of which will go to support HLAA’s work and the rest to support NVRC’s programs and services.

My hat is off to the walk chairs, Ronnie Adler and Tony Bartoli.  When setting up Team NVRC, they were quick to answer my questions about the walk and its website by email, and always helpful.
