Since 1999, bikers from all across South Central Kentucky have been showing up to take a stand against child abuse in our community. Riders have been showing up with blue ribbons and teddy bears for children who have endured unthinkable child abuse. Usually, each Spring, motorcyclists are escorted through the busy streets of Bowling Green from the Warren County Justice Center to Harley-Davidson of Bowling Green. Unfortunately, the COVID-19 pandemic altered the plans for the 2020 Great Teddy Bear Run. Even during a pandemic, and especially when children are in isolation, children are at risk of child abuse. The Great Teddy Bear Run will take place with individual and group rides throughout our community on October 10th-17th. The week will culminate with spaced out Teddy Bear drop off, T-shirt pickup, and silent auction at Harley-Davidson Bowling Green on October 17th. Join us! The kids need us now more than ever.Learn More About This EventDonate To This Event
