More than 50 motorcyclists took part in the United Vets Teddy Bear Run on Sunday, July 27. The run began in Houlton and made its way to TAMC in Presque Isle. Altogether, more than 600 stuffed animals were collected and distributed to County organizations that have contact with children experiencing challenging situations.  During their stop at TAMC, the motorcyclists presented dozens of the stuffed animals to staff in the Emergency Department to give to children.
