Team Giant Teddy: Bears & Humans Racing for a Cure at the 2015 Susan G. Komen OC event

On a beautiful Sunday in late September, Team Giant Teddy participated in the Susan G. Komen OC Race for the Cure event here in California as part of our Breast Cancer Awareness campaign this year.

Lady Cuddles fell in love with this adorable little pink car in the parking garage and never even made it to the race. We had to tell her it wasn't in fact for her to drive home... even if she's big enough to reach the pedals!

Lulu Shags acted as our Team Captain - she loves to help worthy causes especially those involving pink! Lulu has been on several TV shows. You can read her bio on our Bear Paw Walk of Fame.

Team Giant Teddy gathered in the new Komen OC Team Tailgate area before the race. The bears said we need to get a team tent for next year so they can really get our team spirit going.

All our humans had a great time this year, and were happy some of our smaller bears could make it out and join us during the race (the biggest teddy bears cheered us on from the office and the sidelines.) 

Our thanks to Stacy Davis and all the great staff and volunteers at Komen OC for helping Team Giant Teddy participate in fabulous fun furry style. For more information, please visit

For Breast Cancer Awareness in October, we will be donating 10% of every pink teddy bear sale to Komen OC to help them continue in their outreach, education and cure efforts.
