ST. LOUIS– If you spot a man in a bear costume walking through the area, it’s not a Halloween costume. The man is walking from California to New York to raise money for various charities.
He’s called IamBearsun and was spotted in Ballwin and Wildwood earlier this week. He says he walked 30 miles on day 96 of his journey cross-country. He also stopped downtown and took pictures at the Arch, Union Station, and The Grove.
The Iambearsun.com site says the man is walking to raise money for the disabled, cancer, mental health, autism, and environmental communities.
The costume got torn while he was walking through St. Louis and he posted a video this morning of it needing to get stitched up.
