What is Hear the Cheers?

Thanks to a special fundraising effort started in 2013 by a private family in Geneva, Illinois, Chicago Hearing Society has funding available to test, fit and provide hearing aids for school-aged children who are in need. Each year, "Hear the Cheers" raises new funding that is specifically available for boys and girls involved in youth sports or physical activities who would benefit from hearing aids. All children should be able to hear their teammates, coach and fans. Every child deserves to “Hear the Cheers.”
