Bikers with Bears Greeted by Kappa Delta Collegians and Alumnae

November 21, 2018

Kappa Delta (KD) collegians and alumnae welcomed motorcyclists delivering over 1,000 stuffed bears to Children's Hospital of Richmond at VCU's (CHoR) Brook Road Campus on Nov. 3 for the 23rd annual KD Tour Day and 36th annual Teddy Bear Run. Over 300 KDs from Virginia, Maryland and North Carolina toured the hospital and presented a check for $25,000 from the Kappa Delta Foundation in honor of the sorority's Founder's Day. CHoR is one of KD's national philanthropies and has benefitted from more than $1.6 million since the 1920s. Organized by the Blue Knights VA III, the annual Teddy Bear Run features bikers traveling, with a police escort and bags of stuffed bears, from Richmond Harley-Davidson in Ashland down Route 1 to CHoR.
