Courage Tiger’s Road Trip Day 55: Carry a Bead in Central Park!

I am in New York for another day and while I was wandering around this beautiful state, I noticed that there are so many amazing parks! Did you know that a simple walk with a friend, pet or even just yourself can make a difference? If you Carry a Bead with you throughout your adventures through a park, whether it is playing fetch with your dog, or taking in the beautiful day and wandering around a beautiful park, you can make a difference. Each step you take can matter more by carrying a bead! All you have to do is grab one of our awesome Carry a Bead kits, for you or a friend and go one any adventure. Send us back one of your beads with a story about your adventure, maybe a photo or two, and we can send the bead and any pictures to one of our members, it might even make its way back to a member hospital in your state!

Remember to Make Courage Roar and participate in the 9th Annual Bead Challenge! If you want to grab your own Carry a Bead Kit check out our website and our page on Facebook to see what other adventures our supporters have gone on!
