Tempur-Pedic Provides Mattresses to Chicago Bears

Tempur-Pedic BearsCHICAGO-For the second straight season, Tempur-Pedic is supplying mattresses to the Chicago Bears' training camp as the team prepares for the upcoming NFL season.

The mattress brand of Tempur Sealy also partnered with the Bears at last year's training camp. This year, Tempur-Pedic mattresses were delivered to the Bears training camp at Olivet Nazarene University in Bourbonnais, Ill. Once the training camp is finished, Tempur-Pedic will donate the mattresses to the beds used at dormitories at the university.

Chris Hibbs, vice president of sales and marketing for the Bears, said, "Tempur-Pedic is a leading company with premier products steeped in science. Our shared exacting standards make this a logical and special partnership."

This is the second sports-related move by the mattress brand since the beginning of July. Last month, Tempur-Pedic said it had agreed to be an official sponsor of the PGA Tour through 2016.
