Wear your brightest top and get LOUD with the Loud Shirt Day team at the ASB Auckland Marathon on Sunday 31 October and join in New Zealand’s biggest, most iconic, colourful, cultural running celebration.
Loud Shirt Day is the national fundraising campaign for The Hearing House and the Southern Cochlear Implant Programme (SCIP) – the only two charities in New Zealand dedicated to supporting children and adults with profound hearing loss who access sound with cochlear implants.
By choosing to stride with us you are helping these two organisations provide lifetime therapy and support to thousands of Kiwis and their whānau in every region of New Zealand who live with cochlear implants.
For children who don’t benefit from hearing aids, cochlear implants and specialised therapy can help them learn to hear and communicate. For adults, a cochlear implant, along with rehabilitative support, makes it possible to return to the workforce, re-engage with their family and social circles, and reintegrate into society.
