Each year at The Chunky River Harley Davidson, motorcyclists from around the area saddle up to participate in "The Chunky River Christmas Toy Run Parade."
“We go through town; we go through downtown, the point is not to ride, the point is to be visible and let the community know that these Harley Owners Group is out supporting people that need to be supported, and its kids.”
For nearly 20 years Riders have shown up with toys in hand to help kids in need.
“they’ve had different sponsors throughout the year, but this year as I said it will be Cans for Kids who are a children's a ministry that we’ve chosen to sponsor because they do great work, they give some nice things to some deserving kids.”
Cooper also adds how the large parade of motorcycles usually brings a lot of attention to the annual toy drive.
“75 motorcycles all in a row is a pretty impressive site, I think last year there were close to 80, so we’re hoping since we’re gonna have good weather, the cause is great, and we’re hoping for a hundred plus more motorcycles.”
The more the better but organizers know every little bit means a Merry Christmas for those in need.
