When Carmel Catholic meets Marist High School on the football field on Friday, October 15, things are going to look a little pink. As part of the National Football League’s ‘Crucial Catch’ initiative to fight cancer through early detection and risk reduction, the Chicago Bears will support that night’s game with a series of on-site events. 

Beginning at 5 p.m., children and teens will be invited to participate in a skills challenge area while ‘Real Bears Fans Wear Pink’ T-shirts will be on sale with proceeds benefitting Bears Care in support of cancer research and awareness. 

Popular Bears mascot Staley Da Bear will be on hand throughout the night to meet and greet fans while those in attendance will be encouraged to visit a special ribbon table and pick a specially-colored ribbon “In honor of” or “In remembrance of” someone they know who personally fought or is fighting cancer. Special honorees who have been affected by cancer will be honored during the coin toss as well as at halftime.”


The Chicago Bears Monster Squad will be tossing giveaways into the stands throughout the game and special Fans of the Game will be selected from both the Carmel Catholic and Marist crowd as well as a Player of the Game from both teams.
