Run for Bears

Run for Bears

Want to show your support for UMPS CARE Charities but don't know how? Host your own Run for Bears! A Run for Bears event can be held in ANY city. All you need is an existing race, a team leader and team members who want to fundraise. We have held Run for Bears events in Baltimore, MD, Washington, DC, Newport Beach, CA, and Chandler, AZ. Your city could be next!

Run for Bears events were created to help fund the BLUE for Kids Program which provides memorable Build-A-Bear Workshop experiences for children with cancer and other serious illnesses. A hospital stay can be a frightening time for children and their families. Through this program 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 dress their cuddly friends while high-fiving the mascot and sharing a laugh with a major league umpire.
