Cheer on Team USA and help a child in need
As part of our Adventure Bear program Ben Flyin' will be traveling to the Rio 2016 Olympic Games to cheer on Team USA and other athletes from all over the world. This year marks the ninth year that we have unveiled a limited-edition Vermont® teddy bear as the mascot for the Adventure Bear program.
