Oticon is pleased to announce that Lynn Julian, Boston Marathon bombing survivor, has been chosen as a finalist for their Focus On People Awards! Vote for her Online at www.oticonusa.com/Vote now through September 18 and winners will be announced in October.
Lynn Julian, a Boston actress and musician, was severely injured in the 2013 Boston Marathon Bombing, sustaining a permanent brain injury, hearing loss in both ears, a low back injury and severe PTSD. Determined to give others hope, and prove she was stronger than she realized, she learned to run for the first time. In 2014, Lynn completed the Boston Marathon as the only survivor in the mobility-impaired division. As a result, she no longer assumes, just because she’s “disabled,” that athletic activities, or much else, is beyond her reach. Lynn Julian volunteers as a board member of Massachusetts Resiliency Center and as the Massachusetts ambassador for the US Pain Foundation, where she fights for legislation to help others living with chronic pain. Oticon is pleased to announce that Lynn Julian has been chosen as a finalist for their Focus On People Awards!

This is the 17th year of the Oticon Focus on People Awards. Oticon, Inc. has narrowed this year’s finalists down to 9 outstanding people with hearing loss who are helping to change negative stereotypes of what it means to have a hearing loss. Each is unique, remarkable and inspiring. And we are pleased to announce that Lynn Julian has been chosen as a finalist in the Adult category! Oticon has honored hearing impaired students, adults and advocacy volunteers who have demonstrated, through their accomplishments, that hearing loss does not limit a person’s ability to make a positive influence in the world. Please help us recognize Lynn Julian as one of the top finalists in the Focus on People awards by casting your vote at www.oticonusa.com/Vote.
The Oticon Focus on People Awards recognizes outstanding people with hearing loss who are helping to show that hearing loss does not limit a person’s ability to make a positive difference in their families and communities. Since 1997, this national awards competition has honored more than 235 outstanding people with hearing loss. Winners in each of the four categories receive prizes and national recognition that help create awareness and change attitudes that can open doors of opportunity for all people with hearing loss. We encourage reading all of the stories from this year’s finalists. Oticon’s goal is to reach as many people as possible with the inspirational stories of the Focus on People Award finalists.
