The Bear Ride 2016

The Children’s Hospital at Westmead thanks the riders who raised just over $5,500 and provided “adventure” Bears (and their stories) to the hospital and individual kids in 2017.

This year the formula was updated to allow riders to spend more time with their Bears.

A Huge Success in 2015

Thanks to all the riders and sponsors of the first Bear Ride.  Together we raised just over $15,000 for  The Children’s Hospital at Westmead.

This is the best ever result in 11 years of our annual funding raising rides.

The winning photos chosen by the Hospital went to the Briggsey Bear team and Felix The Foster Bear Team.

The most funds raised by a single team was just over $4,100 by the Hairold team.  Excellent work.

Last Friday we handed the Bears to the Wards and a few kids in the hospital.  It was a lot of fun and somewhat emotional.
