BEARS FOR OUR SURGERY PATIENTS

Stowell/Supermodified Racing, now known as the Stowell Bear Team, raises money to build bears at Build-A-Bear and donates them to the Pediatric Surgery Center.  Each bear come with a birth certificate, an x-ray and a scrub outfit that is custom made by one of  the 8 seamstresses on the team.   Children are given bears before they have surgery and they name the bear and it is written on it's birth certificate.  Upon awakening, the staff talks to the child about the bear.  Focusing on the bears helps the children be less afraid during their surgical experience.
