Bear Necessities Pediatric Cancer Foundation will host A Walk for the Bear, its 6th Annual Walk on Sunday, October 20 at 9:00 a.m. in Lincoln Park (Grove 2, intersection of Clark Street and LaSalle Drive). Trick-or-treat and walk the 3-mile trail dressed as your favorite warlock, witch or wizard to benefit pediatric cancer research and provide hope to those affected. Halloween fun will continue with hocus pocus activities including pumpkin decorating, costume contests and a boxed lunch after the walk.
