2017 Events

The Nick Teddy 5k
September 9th

We have three main races: for the serious, the sort-of, and the small fry athletes.


Throughout the event, our Kids Zone offers games, activities, free photo booth and balloon figures. 


As always, everyone enjoys food, music, silent auction and raffles at the after-party.

Our signature fundraiser last September 10th raised nearly $30,000.

QC Mallards Nick Teddy Night


Did you know that Nick was a hockey player in high school? So a fundraiser with the ECHL's QuadCity Mallards was a natural fit!


Our Bear was there, along with volunteers manning the table on the concourse. Lucky fans in the stands caught our t-shirts thrown from the ice at intermission.


And the good guys won!  Our Mallards beat the Komets in a thrilling 4-3 OT finish. 

Craft Love Bettendorf      June

We had a great time making wood signs and decor for our homes!


We drilled, painted, and stained away as owner/instructor Chris urged us on to our best efforts.


Snacks and adult beverages rounded out the evening, and everyone went home a winner!

Nick Teddy Night @ FSB
August 25

We partnered once again with our good friends at Front Street Brewery​​ to provide our over-21 supporters with an opportunity for an after-work evening social.

There was beautiful weather for sipping brews on the party deck, good food, and great people gathered to help our cause!


Tummy Rumble @ CrossFit Port Byron's Rumble on the River: August 19

We were at it again, filling hungry tummies with a rowdy mix of paleo fixin's to fuel all that heavy lifting.


Wear the Bear Day


During Spirit Week at Riverdale Elementary, kids are challenged each day to show up in class sporting a shirt with the animal of the day.

On Wear the Bear day, we make the newly designed Nick Teddy t-shirt available to the kids at a discount.
