Sarah Spain of espnW and ESPN Radio and her mentee, 9th grader Eliza Peters of Geneva, IL, are proud to announce the 2016 edition of Eliza’s "Hear The Cheers" fund in partnership with Chicago Hearing Society (CHS).
Please support our cause because every child deserves the opportunity to “Hear The Cheers!”
In its first three years, "Hear The Cheers" raised enough to allow almost 30 children to receive much-needed hearing aids and equipment. Even more kids have applied for help and are waiting to be served. Thank you to everyone who donated last year and to those who helped spread the word.
All of the money donated to the campaign will go to Eliza’s "Hear The Cheers" fund for young athletes who can’t afford hearing aids.
Donations can be made securely online and are tax deductible. Each dollar donated will go directly to purchasing hearing aids and related audiology services.
"Hears The Cheers" will benefit children all across the Chicago and the Chicagoland suburbs.
Each person who donates at least $15 will be eligible to win one of several great prizes:
- 2 University of North Carolina Chapel Hill Basketball Lower Level tickets to any game next season except Duke
