Teddy Bear Run
July 23, 2016
Hundreds of bikers with Bears strapped to their bike, shoved in bags or boxes show support for The Teddy Bear Run presented by The Southside Riders Association, Complete Truck Bodies, Inc. and Truett’s Grill of Griffin to help supply Law Enforcement and Hospitals Emergency Rooms with a way to comfort young children in stressful situations.
This police escorted ride starts at Truett’s Grill of Griffin and travels via Hwy 341 to Lanes peach orchard in Fort Valley. The ride takes 1hr 10 minutes and passes through the beautiful scenery of South Georgia. The cost of this ride is 1 new Teddy Bear or stuffed animal (or $10) per person.
The community donates clean, new Teddy Bears and stuffed animals and then we take donated bears / stuffed animals and a small toy and seal them in a bag to help protect the teddy bears / stuffed animals until they are needed. Then we distribute them to the local law enforcement and hospitals.
