Introducing "Spring Fling" - a new weekend intro to the Bear Your Soul community
Over the last 6 years, Bear Your Soul has grown into a brotherhood of over 200 men who have learned, shared and grown together. Now we take another step as we add a new Spring event, with new ideas, new energy, and a new leadership team. Spring Fling is a shorter introductory weekend celebrating men of all colors, shapes & sizes! READ MORE ABOUT THE EVENT AND MEET THE LEADERSHIP TEAM BELOW!
