Bears Care is proud to have been selected as a participant in the 2012 Bank of America Chicago Marathon Charity Program. If you are planning to run in this year's Chicago Marathon on Sunday, October 7, 2012, join our team and help support our cause. Bears Care, the charitable beneficiary of the Chicago Bears, helps support after-school educational and youth football programming in underserved neighborhoods of Chicago. These programs help keep children off the streets during a crucial time between the end of the school day and when their parents come home from work. It also teaches our youth a healthy and active lifestyle, and offers a way for children to stay engaged in something they enjoy while keeping them away from violence and gangs. The programs teach the students discipline and teamwork, which translates into the classroom.
