I’m talking about the Portland, Oregon annual Toy Run this Saturday (December 4th) which benefits children at OHSU’s Dornbecker Children’s Hospital.
The major organizer and motorcycle advocacy group for the event is ABATE and this year will mark 31 years. In previous year’s turnout there have been thousands of riders, but more important are the toys collected for sick kids. The Toy Run brings together Harleys, Hondas, clubbers, and even the occasional Vespa scooter. The ABATE members hold a motorcycle raffle to help raise money for the hospital and shortly after noon the police will escort riders followed by a Tri-Met bus full of toys to the Shriners Hospital.
See you there…
