Harley riders make holiday dreams come true Saturday at annual Christmas Toy Run

QUINCY, Ill. (WGEM) -

Santa Claus leading a parade formation of motorcyclists is not something you see everyday.

The River Roads Chapter of the Harley Owners Group were delivering Christmas presents to both the Quincy and Hannibal Salvation Armies for less fortunate kids as part of their annual Christmas Toy Run.

"It is something that gets the motorcyclists out in the community doing good for charity. It puts a smile on everyone's face and it's a good excuse to go for a ride in November," said TNT Action Sports sales manager Andrew Smith. 

Andrew Smith of TNT Action Sports says this event is something the bikers like to do to help out kids who may not get Christmas gifts otherwise.

"They really, especially like to help out little kids. You get to give a gift to a kid that is less fortunate some toys for Christmas. It's a big thing," said Smith.

When they arrived at the Kroc Center, each biker presented a gift to Salvation Army officials as part of their Angel Tree Program which gives toys to families in need.

Pennie Kruse is a chairwoman of the event and says these gifts do so much for kids at this time of year.

"It's the kids. Kids, all children need to have some brightness to their life. Christmas is just so exciting for them, so they deserve toys under their tree this year," said Kruse.
