Thousand Strong TX Bikers Bring Christmas Toys to Abused Children, Needy Families

By  | 

Hundreds of bikers are descending on Austin to make Christmas a little bit better for some special kids in need.

On Sunday, the 28th annual Austin Motorcyclists Toy Run went on, regardless of rain, raising money for the Helping Hand Home in Austin. They help neglected or abandoned babies.

“We could not be more grateful for these rough-and-tough men and women, who have brought so much joy to our children this holiday season. Thank you to all who weathered the storm to make the 28th annual Toy Run a huge success!” the organization wrote on Facebook.

Another event, the TriCounty Toy Run, took place in Austin to raise money for low income families that can’t afford gifts for their children.

Almost one THOUSAND motorcyclists escorted a semi truck filled with 36 bicycles and 81 boxes of toys, which will be given out to kids Coryell, Bell, and Lampasas counties.
