Help HEAR Center by Running a Marathon!
On Sunday May 20th, 2012, many HEAR Center donors will be raising funds by participating in the Pasadena Marathon - an event that includes the Marathon, Half Marathon, Bike Tour, 10K, 5K, and 3.1 mile Fun Run/Walk. This is HEAR Center's 2nd time participating in the marathon, an event that is considered more than a race - with all of Pasadena's attractions and the charms of Southern California, it's a destination!
HEAR Center is a non-profit organization dedicated to helping people at all stages of life be a part of the hearing and speaking world. If you have a friend participating in the marathon and would like to donate through them, please click here and type in their name where it says "Enter friend's name" or you can donate to HEAR Center directly (thank you)!
If you're interested in completing a marathon with us this year or next, we'd love it if you would join us!
