Transforming the lives of chronically ill children, and their families,
shifting all from surviving to thriving - until cures are found. 
Succeeding because we are unique, resourceful, and making a difference, Bounce has been named a "Top 100 Nominee" for the 17th Annual Chicago Innovation Awards (CIA)!

Ce lebrating the most innovative products and services in the Chicago region, past CIA recipients include Spot Hero, Simple Mills, and Shirley Ryan Ability Lab (formerly Rehab Institute of Chicago). Of the 519 applicants, less than 20% made it to the "Top 100." Bounce is proud to stand alongside those outstanding organizations and honored to be recognized the truly important and innovative work we all do daily.

In addition to the judged awards, to be announced on October 29th, Bounce is also eligible for a Chicago Innovation "People's Choice" Award.
