CINCINNATI - This past weekend, the Bearcats Caravan crew was out in the community stirring up Bearcat spirit.
On Friday, May 15, the Bearcat van traveled to Clough Pike Elementary for a Walk-A-Thon fundraiser. The fundraiser directly benefited the needs of the students though educational assemblies, field trips, computer lab instruction and future after-school programs. The Bearcats Caravan crew was there to help. They passed out mini Frisbees and Bearcats tattoos to elementary classes selected at random by the Clough Pike Elementary Principal. Later in the day, the principal raffled off six Bearcat Prize Packs to lucky students.
On Saturday, May 16, the Bearcats Caravan crew went to Kilgour Elementary for the Kilgour 5K Run and Karnival, one of the Eastside's premier festivals. The Karnival consisted of games, rides, prizes, face painting, basket raffle and music. The Caravan crew passed out cups and information to parents, while entertaining the kids with their inflatable football toss. Tons of kids were able to take their best shot at the inflatable football toss. Winners received mini Frisbees and Bearcats tattoos. Parents also had the opportunity to drop a business card for the chance to win two free football tickets to the Southeast Missouri State game.
On Sunday, May 17, the Bearcats Caravan crew went to the St. Catharine's Festival at Harvest Home Park in the heart of Cheviot. The Caravan crew was joined by some members of the University of Cincinnati football team. They helped pass out posters, cups and Bearcat tattoos to all the children in attendance. Team members also posed for photos and autographs. Parents had the opportunity to drop a business card for the chance to win two free football tickets to the Southeast Missouri State game.
