Proud to Collaberate with Special Olympics International and Starkey Cares
In a groundbreaking partnership aimed at transforming lives, Advanced Hearing Blackrock proudly announces its collaboration with Starkey Cares and Special Olympics International. At the heart of this alliance lies a shared commitment to championing the hearing health of athletes worldwide.
The recent Special Olympics World Games Berlin 2023 served as a testament to the power of collective action. With unwavering dedication, Starkey Cares assumed the role of the exclusive global supplier of hearing instruments for the Special Olympics Healthy Hearing programme during the event. From June 17th to 25th, over 2,200 athletes received life-changing hearing screenings, while more than 250 athletes were fitted with complimentary hearing aids.
Michael Scholl, Executive VP of Corporate Relations at Starkey, reflected on the profound impact of this initiative, stating, "Witnessing some of these athletes hear for the first time in their lives was a remarkable experience. Starkey’s purpose is to build caring products that connect people through better hearing, and this partnership is part of fulfilling that purpose."
Advanced Hearing Blackrock, with its unwavering dedication to superior hearing healthcare, stands shoulder to shoulder with Starkey and Special Olympics International. Ailbhe Lennon, a renowned audiologist and advocate for accessible hearing solutions, joins Advanced Hearing Blackrock in this monumental endeavour. Lennon's expertise and passion for empowering individuals through improved hearing align seamlessly with the mission of this partnership.
At the heart of this collaboration lies a commitment to personalised care and transformative technology. Advanced Hearing Blackrock, in tandem with Starkey and partners like Dreve, ensures that every athlete receives tailor-made hearing aids and custom ear moulds. Beyond the World Games, athletes benefit from ongoing support and follow-up care from hearing professionals within their communities, thanks to Starkey’s expansive network of global partners.
The impact of this partnership extends far beyond the confines of a single event. Through this collaboration, thousands of athletes with hearing loss worldwide gain access to vital healthcare services and cutting-edge technology. Looking ahead, Advanced Hearing Blackrock remains steadfast in its commitment to serving athletes at Special Olympics signature events and regional gatherings across the United States.
Together, Advanced Hearing Blackrock, Starkey Cares, and Special Olympics International exemplify the transformative power of collaboration. As we celebrate the success of the Berlin 2023 World Games, we stand poised to embark on a journey of empowerment, inclusion, and unparallelled opportunity for athletes around the globe.
