Riptide Host Inaugural Arena Football Teddy Bear Toss July 30
SAN DIEGO, Calif. The San Diego Riptide is hosting arena footballs first teddy bear toss to benefit Childrens Hospital on Saturday, July 30th, kicking off the San Diego Regional Law Enforcement Teddy Bear Drive. All fans are encouraged to bring a new stuffed animal and toss it onto the field when the Riptide score their first touchdown. The teddy bears will then be collected and donated to Childrens Hospital. The goal of the Teddy Bear Drive is to collect 15,000 bears by Christmas.
Childrens Hospital is celebrating 50 years of providing service to the San Diego community. Their mission: to restore, sustain and enhance the health and developmental potential of children has been sustained only through the help of a compassionate community. Riptide Quarterback, Kane Claunch, has been honored as one of the Heroes for Childrens Hospital. The Heroes for Childrens program aims to get 1,000 heroes to raise $1,500 or more each. Childrens Hospitals final goal is to raise $1 million or more by their 50th anniversary celebration in November 2004.
Come show your support for your San Diego Riptide and Childrens Hospital for the final game of the season on July 30th at 7:30 PM by participating in the inaugural teddy bear toss. Also, in honor of Fan Appreciation Night, the first 3,000 fans will receive free camouflage floppy hats.
