Bikers Bring Bears To Covenant Kids
Every year, Tri-County Michigan H.O.G. Chapter #2250 presents a Teddy Bear Run. The purpose of the run is to put a smile on the face of a child at Covenant HealthCare. At least 1,000 children benefit from the Teddy Bear Run every year with thousands of teddy bears donated over the past 13 years. 2019 is their 14th run, and they are excited to once again come to the rescue of sick or injured children.
The run is a motorcycle event open to the public and beganat Great Lakes Harley Davidson located at 3850 South Huron Road nearBay City, on Saturday. The ride is police patrolled and traffic directed at major intersections with over 200 motorcycles adorned with teddy bears and other stuffed animals. This year the event included a new route which captures 50 scenic miles and arrived at Covenant at 4 pm for the Teddy Bear presentation to the hospital. If you still want to help with a donation of a teddy bear, stuffed animal or monetary contribution, you can always drop them off at Great Lakes Harley-Davidson. There will be a box inside the dealership for drop-offs.
Tri-County Michigan H.O.G. Chapter #2250 and Great Lakes Harley-Davidson are the largest stuffed animal donors to Covenant Kids. This ride provides enough teddy bears and stuffed animals to Covenant Kids for an entire year.
