As you all know, Hope the Bear is our mascot. What you may not know is that every child who attends a retreat receives their own Hope the Bear teddy. The 2nd grade students at Nova Southeastern University School are stepping up to make this possible.
From May 16-20 the 2nd grade students will raise funds for Deliver the Dream by selling teddy-grams (gummy bear bags) during lunch for $1 in the name of Hope the Bear. In addition, any child who donates $10 will be able to fill out a “birth certificate” for a Hope the Bear teddy and give it a name. The certificates and teddy bears will be given to children on our upcoming 2016 retreats.
How amazing are these kids and the teachers and administrators that instill the value of giving back in our youth?? We can’t wait to see the kids embrace this project!

No, not the movie… it’s the 5-week CrossFit Competition going on every Friday from February 26 – March 25! The event, hosted by Club One Athletics, features teams of CrossFitters competing for points for participation, such as sharing the event on social media, best team costume, team spirit and – of course – some athletic performances, too.
Each week features a different benefiting charity and Deliver the Dream was the recipient on Friday, March 11. We were blown away by the athleticism of the teams and the generosity of everyone involved, including the gym’s owner, Chase Brendle. At the end of the night, we were awarded a HUGE check for $1,000!! We are beyond grateful to have been a part of this competition… and it inspired Hope to do a little workout of her own. Thanks Club One Athletics!!
