The mission of the Auxiliary Board of Bear Necessities Pediatric Cancer Foundation is to:
- Enhance the efforts of Bear Necessities as it works to eliminate pediatric cancer and to provide hope and support to those touched by it.
- Build upon and elevate Bear Necessities brand awareness while generating funds and support for the organization.
- Develop long-term Bear Necessities leaders.
When Bear Necessities founder Kathleen Casey analyzed the organization’s volunteer base, she saw an opportunity to further the Bear Necessities mission through the energy of Chicago’s young professional community. She contacted a small group of dedicated Bear Necessities volunteers, and together they set into motion the Auxiliary Board of Bear Necessities Pediatric Cancer Foundation, Inc. The common goal was simple: identify emerging community leaders and charge them with delivering the Bear Necessities message to their peers. This group stands ready to raise awareness, generate financial support and extend the Bear Necessities network.
