Courage Tiger’s Road Trip Day 29: Carry Beads of Courage!

I am in South Dakota, known for Mount Rushmore and its many hiking trails! Although we don’t have any member hospitals in this state, I am so glad that I brought my Carry a Bead so that it could be here at Mount Rushmore with me.

Mount Rushmore is such a sight, and I wanted to make this adventure matter more by carrying a bead. Did you know you can Carry a Bead on any occasion that is meaningful to you? Whether it is at Mount Rushmore or your own backyard, you can share your experience with one of our members on a tough day of treatment. The Carry a Bead kit is a great way to share your inspiring adventures and activities with a child or teen coping with serious illness. Check out the awesome Carry a Bead video below to learn more about how our program works! 

Participate in the 9thAnnual Bead Challenge by funding the mission and helping children and teens around the world coping with serious illness.
