Grab a teddy bear and join hundreds of North Texas motorcycle riders for a charity ride in Collin County benefiting abused and neglected children. Pre-Registration special is now available for the 26th Annual Teddy Bear Ride which supports the work of Children’s Advocacy Center of Collin County, an organization that collaborates with law enforcement and Child Protective Services to facilitate the investigation, prosecution, and treatment of child abuse.
Presented by Harley-Davidson Financial Services, the event begins at IKEA in Frisco and will end at Harley-Davidson Financial Services in Plano. Event highlights include vendors, live music and more! Lone Star 92.5 along with Randy James, producer of the ever popular “Bo and Jim Show” will be on site with giveaways and riders may enjoy food from In-N-Out Burger! Each year, hundreds of bikers take to the streets of North Texas to highlight the plight of abused children and encourage others to join the fight against child abuse. Participants adorn their bikes with plush new teddy bears which eventually make their way into the arms of waiting children who come to the CACCC for help following a disclosure of abuse.
“Children’s Advocacy Center of Collin County has an important place in our community,” said Al Ely, Vice President of Commercial at Harley-Davidson Financial Services. “The Center provides a friendly environment where children can safely share their stories and receive the services they need to heal from abuse. This annual event – which we’ve been a part of since 2003 – is a great way for us to support employee volunteer activities and to give back to our community.”
