An opportunity to help has come knocking
One local parent is working to bring awareness to the needs of special needs children and adults as she is participating in the Walk4hearing fundraiser hosted by the Hearing League Association of America.
Michelle Murray is working to bring awareness to the needs of individuals with speech and hearing problems as part of Better Speech and Hearing Month.
For over 75 years, May has been designated as Better Hearing and Speech Month.
According to HLAA, hearing loss is one of the most unaddressed health conditions in America today, but it affects more than 31 million Americans.
Murray's seven-year-old son, Blaise is one of them.
"So far, I've raised $290, and we have two weeks to go," Murray said. "Now, that Blaise is doing well, it's my time to give back."
