With over 15 years of experience between them, Chris and Nick are dedicated to increasing access to hearing aids and other hearing devices for children. Many hearing-impaired children are not able to afford the aids largely due to recent government cutbacks and changes in the legislation. Responding to the need they witnessed in many of their clients, the idea for raising money came to Chris, Nick and Eric and their sponsors joined them enthusiastically.
