Audigy Group announced that they were a partner of the Special Olympics World Games, which took place July 25 through August 2, 2015 in Los Angeles, Calif. The Games, which hosted more than 6,500 Olympians from across the globe, for the first time featured a special venue called “Healthy Athletes,” which was a place where participants could undergo a number of health exams, including hearing examinations that were facilitated by audiologists from Audigy Group and the Starkey Hearing Foundation.

“Participating in the World Games is incredibly exciting for us,” said Mason Walker, president of Audigy Group. “Our commitment to helping our members foster deeper relationships and help their patients achieve the unachievable through the gift of better hearing defines our purpose. This opportunity is a high honor for all of us.”

The Starkey Hearing Foundation provided fitting and counseling to international athletes who required hearing technology, while Audigy Group members conducted testing for US and Canadian athletes, and facilitated necessary technology fitting appointments, counseling, and follow-up care.

According to Audigy Group, their participation in the event was another show of support to the Starkey Hearing Foundation’s “So the World May Hear” mission — a commitment that has taken the foundation to hundreds of countries to fit more than 1 million hearing aids for those in need.
