Teddy Bear Run

Service

The Rough Riders believe in giving back to the community.  Members contribute time, money, and effort to several local and national charities.  Whether assisting with the Special Olympics, Toys for Tots, the Ronald McDonald House or others,  it's common to see uniformed Rough Riders lending a hand. 

We are best known for our own Teddy Bear runs where members hop on the Teddy Bear Express bus to deliver teddy bears to patients in hospitals.
