Remember when we shared with you a certain video of a man trying to fit a giant teddy bear into his Corvette? Well, it seems Chevrolet was inspired, and shoe-horned one very large teddy bear is riding shotgun in a 2015 Corvette Stingray Convertible. The bear is one of 49 being delivered to Sunshine on Wheels program at the Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center as part of teamGM Cares Week.
Delivering the teddy bears are three members of the GM Asset Management team. Each one of the members is a cancer survivor.
The third annual teamGM Cares Week is a company program to encourage volunteerism in the local community. This year, teamGM cares combined the annual National Teddy Bear day on Sept. 9 with the September Childhood Cancer Awareness Month.
Highlighting the donation is the 51-inch-wide bear riding shotgun in a 2015 Corvette Stingray Convertible. It will be driven through the heart of New York and will have a gold ribbon in recognition of the National Childhood Cancer Awareness month.
The Sunrise Association operates the Sunshine on Wheels program which brings activities and games to cancer patients at the Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center.
