UMPS CARE Charities has held a Run for Bears event in Baltimore, MD, Washington, DC, Annapolis, MD, Chandler, AZ and Newport Beach, CA. Next up is.....BINGHAMTON, NY!
UMPS CARE Charities along with the Evolutionary School of Softball Development will be hosting The Binghamton Run for Bears. The event will raise funds to help provide memorable Build-A-Bear Workshop experiences for children with cancer and other serious illnesses. Supporters of UMPS CARE Charities will raise money for the BLUE for Kids hospital program, then meet on November 9 to run in the Returning Warrior 10 Miler. (There is also a 5 mile option and a kids race!)
A hospital stay can be a frightening time for children and their families. Major League Baseball umpires, MLB umpire wives, 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 dress their cuddly friends while high-fiving the mascot and sharing a laugh with a major league umpire. With the money raised from the Run for Bears event, UMPS CARE Charities will host 12 children's hospital events in 2014.
