Successful Fundraising Efforts

We are very thankful to our multiple donors during 2017. In addition to individual donations, Chaney’s Champions held two successful fundraising events during 2017.
  • Chaney’s Champions partner with DefyGravity in Durham to Bounce 4 Bears. The fundraiser brought in nearly $300 to support our work
  • Turner Creek Elementary in Cary, NC chose Chaney’s Champions for its service project in December of this year and raised approximately $1,700 to benefit Chaney’s Champions! In addition to raising money, the students at Turner Creek recorded how they would pay kindness forward in their community on Chaney’s Champions Teddy Bear ornaments.
We appreciate the support and we look forward to #ChampionOn in 2018!
