Stride Against Silence 5K is an annual run/walk at the UF Commuter Lot benefiting the Cochlear Implant Department at UF Health Speech and Hearing Center. This year’s Stride will be held on Saturday, March 18, 2017 at 8:30am. We are excited to announce that this year we have a superHEARoes theme! The event will feature entertainment from KISS 105.3, speakers with cochlear implants, free breakfast, a drawing, face painting for kids, and more! A shirt, drawing ticket, and goodie bag will be guaranteed for those that register early!
According to the American Speech-Language Hearing Association, approximately 28 million Americans have a hearing impairment. The purpose of Stride Against Silence is to raise money for the Cochlear Implant Department at the UF Health Speech and Hearing Center to help purchase new test materials and therapy materials in the speech department for habilitation and rehabilitation, audiological tests, and provide loaner equipment for both the children and adults patients. We hope you decide to join our cause in supporting the local hearing loss community.
