1,800 teens building 520 bears for the American Heart Association

This is the original build a bear team building event! Each team has puzzles to solve, codes to decipher, and secrets to unlock in order to acquire the resources that they need (part by part) to build a series of images-10custom teddy bears.

Participants divide into small work teams. Each group must complete a series of games/challenges to earn team points. For the final thirty minutes or so, teams use their accumulated points to purchase all parts and accessories necessary to build a high-quality Rescue Bear. Even the bear assembly itself is served up as friendly competition, with groups racing to complete yet another novel but highly engaging task.

Once the bears are completed, they are presented to your local police or fire department to be given to children during emergency situations.

More than 11 million children are transported for emergency medical care each year. A Rescue Bear given by a police officer or firefighter can be a powerful way to help ease pain and worries, calming a child significantly at a potentially frightening time.

*Our team at TeamBonding just sent some of these wonderful bears with love as part of a truck full of supplies to Newtown,CT to a friend whose children were at the Sandy Hook Elementary school.

“We would like to thank the TeamBonding crew for making this such a successful and wonderful event.  The facilitators were so friendly, helpful and positive!  Everyone that I spoke to had a great time and we really enjoyed getting to know each other and creating something for young patients.  It was a fabulous way to kick off the first evening of our event! It was such a pleasure to work with you.  I hope we will have other opportunities in the future.”
