We Walk the Mayor's Riverwalk for BANA

Hi. I'm Charles the Bear Cub. You know me. I live on Sparkle Road with my buddy, Grandpa James. He's really old. He was the second Canadian to get off Noah's Ark, you know.

Oh. Wait! Chance lives with us, too. He's a newborn cubby someone left in a basket on our doorstep. He's a wee little thing. I look after Chance, too. He's a handful!

 Oh. Wait! Frankie lives with us, too. He's four. he goes to the Scruffy Maple Day Care Centre with me.

This is His Worship, Mayor Eddie. He's the boss of Windsor, you know.
Every year, Mayor Eddie invites Frankie, Chance and me to join His Worship on the Queen's Birthday. We walk with the Crosstown Players for five kilometres through the park. We raise money for BANA. That's the Bulimia and Anorexia Association, you know. It's an important group. The people there help boys and girls to eat right and have good body images. That's a very important job.

Our friends and buddies pledge money for our walk. We give the money to BANA. We made lots of money for BANA  this year. We're glad to help 'cuz it makes Windsor a better place. We're good citiziens because we do our part. Oh, wait! Good citizens get to eat Smarties and drink root beer. I love Smarties. I love root beer, too!

 Did you hear that? Grandpa James is hollering, "Where are my handsome bear cubs? Where are my Sons of Windsor? Where are my Princes of Ontario? That's me! Charles! That's Chance! We're handsome bear cubs. We're Sons of Windsor and Princes of Ontario!

Grandpa James is hollering, "Where's Frankie? Where's my handsome Frankie? Where's my Knight of Knewfoundland and Lord of Labrador? 

We gotta go find Grandpa James so we can get our ears tickled and our noses kissed. This is me, Charles the Bear Cub saying, "Be good citizens. Walk for BANA Then you can eat Smarties and drink root beer. Oh! Wait! Come over to our house and walk with us! We can make Windsor a better place together! Okay! Over and out!"
