This past weekend 42 staff, friends and family (along with six, four legged friends) laced up their running shoes for the Kirkland Half Marathon and 5K. Our team of 42 sported their Better Hearing and Speech Month gear and helped raise awareness of hearing and speech issues on the course and at the finish line.
For the 8th year in a row we were proud sponsors of the run hosting a booth in the finale celebration area. Spectators of the run dropped by our booth to create their very own “chEAR” sign to root on their loved one as the crossed the finish line. We were beyond exciteed to help answer questions and to meet the audiologists, speech-language pathologists and persons interested in the fields that stopped by to say hello!
We are already starting our countdown to the 2014 race – thanks to everyone who came out to celebrate!
