Teddy Bear 5 K

Teddy Bear 5K & 1K Walk/Run

The 7th annual Teddy Bear 5K & 1K Walk/Run was a great success. We thank the 250 runners who came out for a walk or run on Sunday, Sept. 29 and the generous sponsors who contributed. The event raised $25,000 for the 2019 School Year Annual Fund to keep the Children’s Center accessible to all children.

Special thanks to McLean Auxiliary Police Officers for providing protection for our runners, to Falls Church Mayor Dave Tarter and Council Member Phil Duncan for awarding teddy bears, to students from George Mason High School and the George Marshall High School Key Club, to Photos for Good, and the one-and-only Gerry Pelletier.

Timing provided by Alexis Tressler and her team at 412 Events.

Please patronize our local retailers and service providers and participate in events organized by local organizations that contributed to the Center’s event.
