NTHC has partnered for years with Bear Necessities in an effort to raise money to fight pediatric cancer.
#Giving Tuesday is a global day of giving fueled by the power of social media and collaboration. On Tuesday, November 29, 2016, Bear Necessities is kicking off the end-of-year giving season with a variety of ways for members of our cause to take action online to support Bear Necessities patients and their families who are our #Heroes4Hope! And the best part is....
An anonymous Bear Necessities supporter will donate $2 to Bear Necessities for each social media action taken on #GivingTuesday with the hashtags #GivingTuesday and #Heroes4Hope.*
So, how can you get involved? Check out the Doc below for details.

In what has become a Homecoming weekend tradition, New Trier hockey players once again joined forces with the local communities in the fight against pediatric cancer. On Saturday, October 15th, players from the boys’ and girls’ teams spread out in Winnetka, Glencoe, Wilmette and Northfield to collect donations for the Bear Necessities Pediatric Cancer Foundation. Established in 1992 and named in memory of eight-year-old Barrett "Bear" Krupa, who died after a courageous five and a half year battle with Wilms Tumor, the Foundation’s mission is to eliminate pediatric cancer and to provide hope and support to those who are touched by it. Through its “Bear Discoveries” and “Bear Hugs” programs, the Foundation funds cutting-edge research and provides for the immediate needs of the children and families battling the disease.
New Trier Hockey’s efforts on October 15th, combined with an online challenge (won by the Blue Team!), raised a remarkable total of $16,500, which easily surpassed last year’s record total. One hundred percent of the money collected went directly to Bear Necessities and will be used to brighten the lives of Chicago area pediatric cancer patients and to provide essential support for their families.
As in prior years, the success of this year’s fundraising event would not have been possible without the generous support of residents in the New Trier communities, players’ families and friends, and the following local businesses where players collected donations on October 15th: Dunkin Donuts in Glencoe, the Wilmette French Market, the Grand Food Centers in Winnetka and Glencoe, No Man’s Land Pizza & Grill in Wilmette, Once Upon a Bagel, Panera Bread in Wilmette, Ridgeview Grill, Starbucks in Winnetka, Glencoe and Wilmette, Three Tarts Bakery and Café, and Walker Bros. Original Pancake House in Wilmette. Please remember to support those who support the Club and its philanthropic activities!
