2011 Hot Chocolate Run for Bears

I am running in the Hot Chocolate 15/5K to help provide memorable Build-A-Bear Workshop® experiences for children with cancer and other serious illnesses.  Please support my effort by making a tax-deductible donation here on my personal page. 

A hospital stay can be a frightening time for children and their families.  Major League Baseball umpires, sports team mascots, and professional sports photographers team up to host Build-A-Bear Workshop experiences at children's hospitals across the country. Hospitalized children make stuffed teddy bears, puppies or kittens while sharing high-fives with the mascots.

To see the program in action, watch the video located just under the event logo on the right.

With our support, UMPS CARE Charities will host 12 children's hospital events in 2012.  A donation of any size is appreciated but here is a general guideline for you to consider:

SINGLE =  $25...1 Build-A-Bear Workshop
DOUBLE = $50...2 Build-A-Bear Workshops 
HOME RUN = $100...4 Build-A-Bear Workshops 
GRAND SLAM = $250+...10+ Build-A-Bear Workshops
