Join United Way of Kern County for our first-ever 5k fundraiser! The Teddy Bear 5k Run & Walk will be held on November 19th at Riverwalk Park.
Every year teddy bears are collected and given out to thousands of children in our community. Law enforcement uses teddy bears to help in situations where a child is present. Schools and other organizations utilize these teddy bears to help reward a student and some to soothe a child during a hardship. The Teddy Bear 5k Run & Walk will benefit local charities and organizations that serve children. All proceeds will fund our Teddy Bear Drive and early childhood education programs. Bring a stuffed animal to be donated to the Teddy bear Drive!
