Audiology: Student News - Walk 4 Hearing

On October 18, 2009, the CUNY Graduate Center Walk 4 Hearing team walked 3.2 miles in support of hearing loss prevention and education programs. Twenty-eight team members were signed up, including students, parents and faculty; one of the largest teams in the walk! Together we raised $1,265.00; more than twice our original goal of $500!!! All together, 561 walkers were signed up, and the NYC Walk 4 Hearing raised $138,342.34, and donations will still be accepted through December. The rain didn’t keep us down, and ten CUNY team members walked in our team t-shirts, cute purple Walk 4 Hearing hats and raincoats (among other layers!) and had a great time! The event was great, and I have to give a huge thank you to all the support from Walk co-coordinator Toni Iacolucci, who was so helpful through the whole process. We hope to continue the tradition of having a CUNY Graduate Center team walk in this event in the years to come, and to keep surpassing our goals!
