CELEBRATE SOUND Don’t Walk in Silence®Celebrate Sound Logo

CELEBRATE SOUND Don’t Walk in Silence® is a national fund- and awareness-raising event created by Hearing Charities of America (HCOA). This premier event is designed as a turn-key fundraising project to raise support for the National Hearing Aid Project and other related programs, as well as help individuals and organizations promote hearing health in our communities.

Celebrating Our Hearing Health Mission

HCOA and our affiliates are renowned for our hearing health mission. Hearing health agencies, the audiology and speech pathology professions, deaf and hard-of-hearing students – these communities know the impact we make. But with CELEBRATE SOUND, we can spread the word beyond these circles. Many worthy causes have gained recognition and awareness through nationally-branded events like walks. Now it’s time for hearing health to shine in the spotlight.

The CELEBRATE SOUND Partnership

This event is designed as a partnership between the event organizer and HCOA to generate awareness and funding for local needs and our national hearing health mission.

HCOA provides the tools and supplies for the event, from t-shirts and posters to full administration of participants and donations. The event organizer provides for the local needs – permits, facilities, day-of-event activities, and recruitment of local sponsors and participants. The event organizer’s expenses and supply costs will be paid from the revenues generated by the event. The remaining proceeds (net revenue) will be equally divided between HCOA and the local organizer.
