The United Vets Teddy Bear Run made its way from Houlton to Presque Isle over the weekend, bringing joy to County kids and leaving smiles along the way.

When it was started, the ride's initial intent was to help abused children but Club President Bob Wright says that it has 'morphed' into what it is today; collecting teddy bears on their path and delivering them to various points, including the emergency room at TAMC.

Anyone with a motorcycle and a teddy bear can participate in the ride. You also don't have to be a veteran to be a member of the United Vets Motorcycle Club, though veteran status is required to be an officer in the club. If you'd like to learn more about the club or the ride contact Bob Wright at (207) 540-6475.
