Now Playing: Cubs Caravan On the Move

On Jan. 16 and 17, the Chicago Cubs On the Move 2013 Caravan Tour delivered Cubs baseball to deserving individuals and organizations throughout the Chicago area and northwest Indiana. The annual tour featured two busloads of players, coaches and front office personnel visiting more than 15 locations.

The Cubs Caravan highlights the importance of reading, education and fitness to students at schools and libraries; drops in on patients in hospitals to brighten their days; and visits military personnel to show appreciation to those serving our country. This year’s theme, Cubs on the Move, reflects the Cubs’ and Chicago Cubs Charities’ focus on health, fitness and education for at risk individuals.

The 2013 tour visited six schools, four hospitals and the Chicago Public Library (Merlo branch). New stops included the 2nd Battalion, 24th Marine base, where Cubs players, coaches and front office staff served lunch to active duty military and veterans in partnership with the USO.
