Fans of the Hershey Bears hockey club from the United States set a world record as part of the Teddy Bear Toss charity event. In the seventh minute of the match, when Hershey Bears forward Axel Jonsson Fjalby opened the scoring, thousands of plush toys flew into the Giant Center ice arena. They flew from the stands for several minutes, and according to the calculations of the club representatives, the fans threw 52 341 toys.
According to daily.afisha.ru, the previous record also belonged to Hershey Bears fans. So, in 2019, they threw 45 650 toys onto the ice. All toys under the Teddy Bear Toss campaign go to charities, hospitals and orphanages. In addition, the club that organized the action and its sponsors donate to charitable funds an amount equal to the number of toys on the ice.
