Chattanooga State Community College will host the 6th Annual Chattanooga Walk4Hearing on May 10 beginning at 10 a.m. and continuing along the Riverwalk.  

Since 2009, the Chattanooga Walk has raised more than $125,000 to support programs and services for people with hearing loss. Interpreters and captioning will make the event accessible.  

Nationwide, there are more than 48 million people affected by hearing loss. The 2014 Chattanooga Walk4Hearing main focus is to aid children with hearing loss and provide greater accessibility in the greater Chattanooga area for people with hearing loss. 

This year’s pre-walk activities begin at 9 a.m. Activities include face painting by Manasi’s Art, magician Jerry White of South Pittsburg, a Bounce House, Zumba warm up with Heidi Cawood, and a visit from MosNooga Squad (Chattanooga Star Wars enthusiasts) in addition to various games available at the kids tent. There will be free food, water and sodas to enjoy. Water also will be offered at the halfway point located at Fry Pavilion along the Riverwalk.  

One individual walker who raises the most money will win a free two-day stay, valued at more than $500. Dwayne Massengale, manager at Marriott Spring Hill Suites on Riverfront Parkway, donated this prize package. Second, third and fourth place prizes include $50 gift certificates good at any CBL-owned Mall. Fifth and sixth place prizes include a hand fan and three-piece BBQ tool set. 

Walkers who pre-register online at www.walk4hearing.org and donate or earn at least $100 will receive an official Walk4Hearing T-shirt.
