Hundreds of bikers are already working to make sure kids don’t get left out this Christmas.
The riders met at the Rocky Mountain Motor Cycle Museum in Colorado Springs for the 22nd annual High Country Toy Run.
The bikers teamed up with the Marine Corps to help out Toys for Tots. A donation of one toy got you in the ride, but some donated a lot more.
Rider Preston Lovett says he loved the turn out and getting to help the kids. He says, “It’s great publicity for bikers because we try to help out a lot of different things in the community, but overall it’s for the kids.”
The group was escorted by Colorado Springs Police. Some riders say it was the largest escort they’ve had in the 22 years of the ride.
