LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WAVE) - Kentucky State Police troopers delivered teddy bears Tuesday to children who are battling a severe or terminal illness at Norton’s Children’s Hospital.
Troopers went to Norton’s to give out “Trooper Teddy Bears” to comfort children staying in the hospital. The children and police were all smiling as the bears were being distributed.
The Trooper Teddy Bear program first started back in December of 1989.
