BENEFITING: Bear Necessities Pediatric Cancer Foundation
ORGANIZER: Bear Necessities Pediatric Cancer Foundation
On October 13th, I am running the Chicago Marathon. I have chosen to run in honor of a brave young boy, a very special family friend, Andrew Illig. Andrew inspired us all with his strength, courage, and sense of humor throughout his battle with cancer.
This run will benefit the Bear Necessities Pediatric Cancer Foundation whose mission is to support children and families affected by cancer and to support research and development to find a cure.
With your help, we can move closer towards finding a cure. Any amount helps to make a difference. If you would like to learn more about this organization you can visit their webpage at www.bearnecessities.org. Thank you for your continued support.
Have an awesome day,
Bear Necessities Pediatric Cancer Foundation, founded in 1992, has a mission to eliminate pediatric cancer and to provide hope and support to those who are touched by it. President/Founder Kathleen A. Casey and her eight-year-old son, “Bear,” started Bear Necessities during Bear’s struggle with cancer. It was Bear’s dream that every child with cancer would have the same support that he received from his friends and family. In 1993 after 5 ½ years, Bear lost his battle to this terrible disease, but from his simple dream, Bear Necessities, was born. I invite you to support my efforts and Bear Necessities’ mission.
