Teddy Bears' Picnic 2014

This year 30,000 people and teddy bears came out to enjoy the 28th Annual Teddy Bears' Picnic held on May 25th, 2014. This was the fourth year that the CAAEC ran the "BEAR AWARE Food Allergy" area. 

We treated about 500 Teddy bears for their symptoms with epinephrine trainers, tested for food allergy and they were given medical alert bracelets and stickers. This area created awareness about severe food allergy and the Food Allergy Education program for parents and for school age children offered at our Centre.

This year 50,000 people and teddy bears came out to enjoy the 27th Annual Teddy Bears’ Picnic held on May 26th, 2013. Inside the Dr. Goodbear Clinic our BEAR AWARE Food Allergy Clinic saw over 500 bears, all with severe food allergies. Our allergy nurses, doctors and volunteers treated bears for their symptoms with epinephrine trainers, tested them for food allergy and gave each one a special allergy bracelet and a sticker. There were tiny bears allergic to eggs and big bears allergic to peanut as well as kittens and puppies allergic to fish and even some giraffes who allergic to milk. Here are some of the photos from that day!
