You may not give hearing loss much thought. But for 50 million Americans, it is a significant health issue.

That’s why Sertoma and SUNY Cortland’s NSSLHA Club, one of America’s first service clubs, is sponsoring a 5K walk/run to raise awareness and funds for hearing health. Join the SUNY Cortland NSSLHA Club on May 5th for the biannual CELEBRATE SOUND Don’t Walk In Silence 5K Color Run. To participate as a walker, sponsor, or a hearing health provider.
