Named for Mifflinburg teenager Burke P. Derr who died due to cystic fibrosis (CF) in 1997, Burke P. Bear began a United States and world tour to create an awareness of the disease and to raise funds for research. Now, more than 16 years later, the "Travelling Teddy" has visited all 50 states, two Canadian provinces and 23 countries in touching thousands of lives and raising more than $535,000 for CF research.
