Unlike other teams that partner up with charities, the Chicago Bears have chosen to collaborate with the Northshore University Health Care System for their 2014 Breast Cancer Awareness Campaign. The NUHCS is an integrated health care delivery system attending to the needs of the Chicago Metropolitan area.
A few posts ago, we talked about how important it is to collaborate with local institutions that cater to people living in your area. Often times, these are the institutions that need the most help, because they do not receive support from big companies or national charities. They mostly rely on local help, as in donations from businesses and individuals.
Just last September 9, Bears Care awarded 13 local institutions funding from the success of their 2013 campaign. Bears Care, the Chicago Bear’s charitable arm has donated over $700,000 to several institutions that offer care and assistance to breast cancer patients and their families living in Metro Chicago.
To kick start this year’s campaign, the Bears announced the availability of the Real Bears Fans Wear Pink T-Shirt. The design was chosen by Bears fans in an online poll. How do you like it?
Fans attending the September 28 game against the Green Bay Packers and October 19 versus the Miami Dolphins would be able to purchase the t-shirts on site at Gate 0 or on the United 100 level. Hospitals that are part of the North Short University Health System will also be selling the t-shirts in their gift shops.
The good people from Custom On It are ready to provide you with custom made shirts just like the Bears’.
