Calgary Hockey and the Teddy Bear Toss

If I was going to visit Calgary at this time of the year, I would definitely get myself a ticket to the Hitmen hockey game that is going to have the teddy bear toss.

What a fantastic idea!

Ticket holders of the Hitmen hockey team come to the game prepared. After the first goal scored by a Hitmen player, thousands of teddy bears rain down on the ice. The bears are later donated to Alberta Children's Hospital. This year over 25,000 bears were collected.

Here is the link to this year's event ... and take the time to watch both videos. Listen for the sounds of the children laughing and feel the excitement of the fans.
