Sponsorship Packages


The goal of the BIG BEAR STAMPEDE is to create awareness of depression as a real illness; one that kills, and to encourage necessary responses in Park County, Montana. Depression affects one in five people in Montana. The community of Gardiner has had the courage to stand up and confront this issue by bringing information, education and counseling services to our schools and communities. WE APPRECIATE THE SUPPORT OF ALL OUR SPONSORS. YOUR DONATIONS HAVE HELPED THIS HAPPEN. WE NEED YOUR CONTINUED SUPPORT.
