Bears for Nationwide Children's

About the Campaign

Each year there is opportunity to support the Memorial Tournament Neonatal Intensive Care Unit by purchasing the annual Limited Edition Memorial Tournament bear. A bear can be taken home or donated back to a child at Nationwide Children's! 100% of all proceeds from the bear sales stay in central Ohio to benefit the patients of Nationwide Children's Hospital.
