In 2019, more than 600 friends explored the Bronx Zoo at Clarke's Listening Walk at the Zoo and raised over $80,000! Thanks to their involvement, children who attend Clarke New York will feel the impact of the generous support today and in the future.

If you weren’t able to join us at the Bronx Zoo (Philadelphia Zoo), you still can make a gift in honor of your favorite Clarke student or teacher!

Congratulations to Listening Walk Award Winners:

  • Largest Team: Team Maya
  • Top Fundraising Team: Wesley's Wildcats
  • Top Fundraising Individual: Wesley K.

Clarke's Listening Walk at the Zoo in New York 2019

Clarke’s Listening Walk events are uniquely designed to show the public that children who are deaf or hard of hearing can listen and talk. These signature events, presented by Clarke Schools for Hearing and Speech, raise awareness and support for Clarke and help ensure that more children and families have access to listening and spoken language therapy and education.

Unlike other walk fundraisers, Clarke’s Listening Walks are centered around a self-paced Listening Scavenger Hunt. Children who are deaf or hard or hearing, and their friends and siblings, are encouraged to use their listening skills to discover new sounds, like the honk of a flamingo or the squeak of a bat, as they seek out the Listening Stops located throughout the zoo.

Don't miss out on any of our Listening Walk communications!
