Join us for our 3rd annual Teddy Bear Trot!
We are looking forward to giving back to our community through our partners at Opportunity House in Reading. We ask that everyone bring a brand NEW Teddy Bear to the event. We will run the teddy bears from West Reading Playground to Opportunity House where they will be donated to children utilizing the Children's Alliance Center. After making our donation, we will continue on route to finish our 4 mile fun run.
The $10.00 charge for this event will be entirely donated to Opportunity House as they continue to serve our homeless community. Additional monetary donations will be accepted at the event and will be given to Opportunity House to support their endeavors.
Everyone will have a chance to wear-test Karhu shoes, an exclusive Fleet Feet product. Karhu is Finnish for the word, Bear, making their brand a perfect partner for this event! Fleet Feet will donate the sales from our first 10 Karhu shoes sold between February 12-14.
Runners will be sent to Opportunity House in groups of 20 to make our donations. This pre-caution is being taken to keep everyone safe as we continue dealing with the global pandemic. Groups will be depart at 8:30, 8:45, 9:00, 9:15 and 9:30 to donate the teddy bears. Please take a look at the pace ranges for each group and sign up for the time that best suits your abilities.
