Join us at Lincoln Park, Grove 2

8:30 am Registration - 9:30 am Start 

Join courageous children battling cancer and be a part of A Walk for the Bear! Form a team with friends, family or coworkers and fundraise to support the Bear Necessities mission to eliminate pediatric cancer and provide hope and support to those touched by it.

Halloween costumes are welcome at this family-friendly event which features fun activities for the kids and trick-or-treating along the route! Strollers are allowed but for everyone's safety, we request that bicycles, inline skates, skateboards are not used during the walk. Family dogs are also allowed to walk with you, but pets must be on a leash at all times during the entire event.

Thank you for joining us and walking with these brave and inspiring kids!
