The CHEO Teddy Bears’ Picnic is the CHEO Foundation’s way to say thank you to our wonderful community for all of the incredible support CHEO receives throughout the year. It’s a family event that s packed full of super fun activities for kids of all ages.
- The day begins with a celebrity pancake breakfast from 8 a.m. to 10:30 a.m. where pancakes, sausages, juice and coffee are served up by local celebrities. Breakfast for families attending the Teddy Bears’ Picnic is free thanks to Sezlik.com. While quantities last.
- Kids can bring their stuffed animals to the B*A*S*H Tent (Bear Ambulatory Surgical Hospital) and volunteers from CHEO will make sure to fix any boo-boo that local stuffies have sustained.
- Things get rolling with the parade of mascots at 9:30 a.m. followed by carnival games, music and entertainment, clowns, face painting and free tours of the Governor General’s residence throughout the day. Don’t forget to visit the popular Build a Buddy tent, where for $20 children can create their very own teddy bear. All festivities end at 2 p.m.
Mark your calendars for next year’s picnic – June 22, 2019.
