Thank you to EVERYONE who contributed to the HLAA-Central MA Team Walk 4 Hearing fundraiser. It was a beautiful, blustery, autumn day in Boston, and there was a big crowd. The New England website of HLAA (Hearing Loss Association) says we raised over $85,000, and it also says Margaret raised over $1,905! Yowsa! she ended up coming in 4th among individual fundraisers (see purple person in line-up of honorees.
Thanks to all of you who contributed so generously. When people gave, they wrote of parents, spouses, and (shyly) themselves – we are all affected by someone’s hearing loss.

Thanks again, and hope to see everyone at the next chapter meeting
