The Bears and Bears Care will officially recognize National Breast Cancer Awareness Month Sunday when the Bears host the Jacksonville Jaguars at Soldier Field.

Over 100 tickets to the game are being provided to breast cancer patients and their families through the Bears Share ticket donation program.

In addition, the national anthem will be performed by the "Sing to Live" chorus, which is comprised of breast cancer survivors and those impacted by the disease. During the anthem, many survivors will be among those holding the Bear Down and American flags.

The Navy Leapfrogs Parachute Team will parachute into Soldier Field wearing the 2016 Real Bears Fans Wear Pink shirt. The shirt will be available for purchase at the Ultimate Tailgate just outside the stadium and at four locations inside the stadium at Gate 1, the 100 level of the United Club and behind Mezzanine Sections 101 and 138.

The Real Bears Fans Wear Pink campaign, which raises funds to support programs serving Chicago area breast cancer patients and their families, is in its ninth year. All proceeds from the campaign benefit Bears Care, the charitable arm of the Chicago Bears. Over the last eight years, over $1 million has been raised to help fight breast cancer through the Real Bears Fans Wear Pink campaign.
