Note about the 2014 Teddy Bear Ride:

Nearly 1,000 riders joined us for the 22nd annual Teddy Bear Ride on Sunday, Oct. 26. What a tremendous showing of support! Your participation shows your commitment to ending child abuse in our community, and we are so grateful.

We recognize that you have a choice of how you give your charity dollars and your volunteer time, and we are grateful you chose to participate in the Teddy Bear Ride. We have learned that there were safety issues along this year’s route. We have heard your feedback and appreciate you taking the time to share your concerns.

We are evaluating every detail of this year’s route to identify where the communication breakdown occurred. Please know we remain committed to the safety of our participants and will address and correct errors made for next year’s event.

Thank you for riding to end child abuse, and we hope to see you at the 2015 Teddy Bear Ride!
