Walk4Hearing Fundraising Succeeds...and Continues During the 2020 Pandemic

The NJ HLAA Walk4Hearing "Virtual" walk was a great success on Sunday, October 11. More than $36,000 was raised for NJ hearing loss organizations of all kinds (with 50% supporting the HLAA national office). Instead of the usual large and festive gathering at Mercer County Park in West Windsor, friends, families and neighbors went on walks in their neighborhoods and parks.

Thus, on October 11, members of the Morris County Chapter board, Ann Marie Picardo (President), Judy Heimbach (Treasurer), Pat Dobbs (Past President), Alice Glock (VP) and Jennifer Percival (Trustee) gathered outdoors for the Zoom "Celebration". After watching the inspiring online presentation we walked 2.7 miles on a nearby hiking trail. Joining us was Karen Rogers who brought a collection of well-made made masks with windows which she sewed. (If you'd like to order one of these masks contact Karen at
