REGISTRATION IS OPEN! Register now for Clarke Philadelphia’s 4th Annual Listening Walk at the Zoo and 5K Run!

This event begins with an exciting 5K Run throughout the Zoo followed by the Listening Scavenger Hunt. Last year we had 1,134 friends join us to explore the Philadelphia Zoo and we hope to have even more this year!

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 of 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!
