Trolls Teddy Bear Run
 

Superstition Mountain Rotary is participating in this year's 'Teddy Bear' drive which focuses on collecting donations of new teddy-bears/animals for 'Trolls Teddy Bear Run'. 

Donations must be new/never used and can be made between now and end of November at our weekly Wednesday Rotary meetings. 

If you're not a Rotarian, but still want to help provide some new stuffed teddy bears/animals? ----- Not a problem- Jeff Mitchell, the club's Service Projects Chair,  will be happy to collect your new bears/stuffed animals and deliver your donation. You can contact him via the link under 'Club Executives and Directors' on the right side of this page.

'Trolls Teddy Bear Run' organization is a 501(c)3 focused on providing stuffed animals/teddy bears for police / first-responders / family advocacy centers, to have on hand to be able to give a 'fuzzy friend' to children encountered during traumatic situations. Often times, young children involved in these situations can be quite upset and traumatized. Being able to receive a 'fluffy/fuzzy teddy bear /animal friend' from the first responder can help to ease the tension / trauma the young child is experiencing.

2022 will be the 7th year for 'Trolls Teddy Bear Run', which occurs on the 1st Saturday in December each year. Motorcycle riders participate in the event, riding through a course with various stops throughout the East Valley, where raffles, prizes, food and more await them - making it a fun day for all the riders.
 
This year Superstition Mountain Rotary, along with other area service organizations and community residents, will work through the end of November collecting donations of new stuffed teddy bears/animals. Help our first responders ease the tension and trauma of young children they encounter with your donations of new stuffed teddy bears/animals.
