The Chicago Bears organization is proud to implement and support numerous community program and initiatives which positively impact thousands of individuals, children and family each and every year. Here are some of the many ways that the Bears show their support during the football season.

Real Bears Fans Wear Pink
The 2018 Real Bears Fans Wear Pink T-Shirts are on sale! Order yours today by clicking here, or purchase shirts at the Bears game on October 21. Proceeds from the "Real Bears Fans Wear Pink" campaign benefit Bears Care, the charitable arm of the Chicago Bears. Advocate Heath Care, the Official Health Care Provider of the Bears, will once again partner with Bears Care to help promote this important initiative. Over the last ten years, we've raised over $1 million to support programs serving the unique needs of breast cancer patients and their families and hope to be able to expand on these efforts with your support again this year. Thank you for teaming up with the Bears fans across the country to make a difference.

New for 2018, we are happy to offer a women's cut v-neck shirt option, in addition to the unisex crew neck style. The shirts are a tri-blend of 50% polyester, 25% cotton and 25% rayon. They feature side seams and a retail fit with shoulder to shoulder taping. The women's cut is moderately fitted.

We know many organizations look for opportunities to support breast cancer patients in the month of October, and we are looking for community partners to join our efforts. If you, your school, or your organization are interested in teaming up with Bears Care to help fundraise by selling our "Real Bears Fans Wear Pink" t-shirts, please contact
