Hockey Team Delivers Teddy Bears to Children’s Hospital

National Sports

The Bismarck Bobcats junior hockey team joined many other teams in North America that do a Teddy Bear Toss.

The first goal of a specific game cues the fans to toss teddy bears on the ice – large and small. The bears are then delivered by the team to a local children’s hospital. I joined the Bobcats yesterday as they made some special deliveries.

It wasn’t a typical Tuesday for children in the Sanford children’s wing.

NAT: We got a pink pig. Pillow pet dog.

STAND-UP: From the ice to the Sanford Children’s hospital, the Bismarck Bobcats are handing out teddy bears. The patients got their choice, which was kind of overwhelming, but whole point was just to put a smile on their face.

NAT: Doggie! Nice – good choice. Thank you.

(Jared Resseguie, Bobcat) Just to see the kids faces light up when they see all the bears and they get to choose their own. It’s just awesome.:

(Zach Kennedy, Forward) “They are probably having a hard time as it is and just coming in, helping them out. That’s just all that matters.”

Four year old Sam was one of the beneficiaries of a new friend: A big, new friend.

Do you think the kids enjoyed it?

(Jared Resseguie, Bobcat) “Oh I know they did. I know I loved it. I hope they did.

But I think that smile says it all.

These kids are confined to the hospital, so a small present and some friendly faces can go a long way.

(Zach Kennedy, Forward) “Just to show that we care”

NAT: It’s probably her first time seeing so many people.

One day Sam will be able to join his friends on the playground at school, but thanks to the community and the Bobcats, he has Big Teddy to keep him company.

“I love my big bear. I’m going to keep him forever.”
