The Bear Ride combines our love of riding, a photo competition and putting smiles on kids faces. The first Bear Ride in 2015 was a huge success thanks to the efforts of the 20 teams of riders.
The Children’s Hospital at Westmead thanks the riders who raised just over $15,000 and provided 16 “adventure” Bears (and their stories) to the hospital and individual kids.
In 2016 the formula will be the same. Teams of riders will be asked to “purchase” a special Bandaged Bear during July and August. Actually, they will only be Bear sitting. All the Bears will become prizes for the kids in hospital. Teams will have until the end of September to take their Bear to various locations around Australia and photograph it enjoying an adventure.
