Shriners Hospitals

We know that sometimes it’s the small things that can make a big difference in helping a child heal or recover. Teddy Bears are a symbol of comfort and love, especially to children including our patients receiving care at any of the 23 Shriners Hospitals for Children locations. Love to the rescue comes to life through the representation of the Teddy Bear with a cape, which is the main visual element of our float; it symbolizes love coming to the rescue of the more than 100,000 children our health care system cares for every year. The Teddy Bear is also wearing a fez, which represents Shriners International, the fraternity that founded and continues to operate our health care system.
