The design of the 2014 breast cancer awareness t-shirt was selected by Bears fans in online voting.
Net proceeds from the sale of Real Bears Fans Wear Pink shirts benefit Bears Care, the charitable arm of the Chicago Bears. Funds raised through the campaign are directed to Chicago area programs that provide care, assistance and support to breast cancer patients and their families, with over $700,000 awarded to date.

NorthShore University HealthSystem, the Official Healthcare Partner of the Chicago Bears, will partner with Bears Care again this year to help promote this important initiative, and will offer individual shirts for sale in each of their hospital gift shops.

Fans attending Bears home games Sept. 28 against the Green Bay Packers and Oct. 19 versus the Miami Dolphins will be able to purchase shirts at the Miller Lite Ultimate Tailgate, inside Gate 0 and near the south escalator on the United Club 100 Level.

On Sept. 9, Bears Care hosted representatives from 13 Chicago area organizations that provide support and services to breast cancer patients and their families, each a recipient of funding made possible by the success of the 2013 Real Bears Fans Wear Pink campaign.  

Agency staff, breast cancer survivors and Bears Care volunteers enjoyed lunch at Halas Hall along with an inspirational presentation by Leigh Weinraub, founder of "Mind in Motion," followed by the unveiling of the 2014 shirt design, which was chosen by Bears fans in online voting last month.
