The Teddy Bear Run for MultiCare Auburn Medical Center – a large motorcycle ride designed to collect and bring the comfort of stuffed animals to the hospital – returned last Sunday.

The South King County Chapter of Alky Angels, a group of 200-300 motorcycle riders, presented the ride.

Riders gathered at the South King Alano Club, 1317 Harvey Road, Auburn, and departed for an eight-mile leisure route to deliver new stuffed animals at the hospital. Once they get to the parking lot, a drill team performed. Riders dropped their stuffed animals in collection barrels and enjoyed a hosted lunch.

The stuffed animals will go to the hospital for emergency room, surgical, obstetrics and dementia departments.
