Approximately 36 million American adults report some degree of hearing loss. The students and faculty in the Department of Speech Pathology and Audiology at West Virginia University are constantly doing their part to raise awareness of hearing loss to the public and how it may be prevented through a variety of community service activities year-round. 

The annual MountainEAR 5K is our biggest activity. It is hosted by the Student Academy of Audiology at West Virginia University. Proceeds will benefit the Hugh Lindsay Hearing Aid Fund for patients that are unable to afford hearing aids, as well as contribute to other clinic needs.

This year is our 7th annual MountainEAR 5K! We appreciate your continued support!

Packet pick-up will take place at 5:00 pm on April 6th at the WVU Hearing Center located on the 3rd floor of Allen Hall on the Evansdale Campus. At this time, free hearing screenings will be offered to all participants. 

On April 7th, packet pick-up will begin at 9:00am for those who still need to pick up their packets and/or register. ***Please register before March 20th, 2017 for a guaranteed free t-shirt of your size.*** Your registration includes the race, a t-shirt, a registration packet with hearing health goodies, and food and drink for after the race.
