My Personal Fundraising Page
I will be joining Bear Construction Company in their 3rd annual participation in the Chicago Polar Plunge on Sunday, March 1st for the 20th Anniversary! Take the challenge and jump in Lake Michigan for Special Olympics Chicago! Subcontractors, clients and loved ones to join in on team Bear whether you go knee deep, waist-high, or take the full plunge and support the 7,500+ special olympians who compete year-round in the city of Chicago. All funds raised will benefit the Special Olympics Chicago athletes, covering program costs such as transportation, sports equipment, team uniforms and food. Through your participation, people with intellectual disabilities have the opportunity to discover new strengths, abilities and success.
About Bear Construction
Founded in 1984, BEAR Construction focuses on every aspect of construction. The privately owned business can do it all, from estimating, to project management and general construction. With annual revenues of $300 million, BEAR is supported by over 200 full-time professionals. Additionally, the firm employs a large team of union carpenters, laborers, and decorators with experience in all types of projects.
While BEAR has grown significantly since its early days, the company has made it a priority to maintain the same family atmosphere they began with. That culture, where every employee has a sense of pride and ownership in everything the company does, is what sets BEAR apart from its competitors today.
The main headquarters for BEAR is located in a 36,000 square foot office/warehouse facility in Rolling Meadows, IL. BEAR also maintains a fully staffed office in downtown Chicago with offices in Bradley and Champaign, IL and Milwaukee, WI.
