River Roads Harley-Davidson Christmas Toy Run is Saturday
The River Roads Chapter of the Harley Owners Group (HOG) is organizing a Christmas Toy Run to benefit The Salvation Army’s 2016 Christmas Toy Town programs in Quincy and Hannibal.
The Quincy Toy Run will start at 10 a.m. this Saturday when the riders will meet at Great River Road Harley-Davidson at 52nd and Oak in Quincy. The bikes will ride in “parade formation” down Broadway into the Kroc Center parking lot at 405 Vermont. Each rider (and passenger) will present a new toy to Salvation Army officials for the Toy Town program, which provides toys for families in need.
The Hannibal Toy Run will stage at the Hannibal Walmart at 1 p.m. Saturday. From there, they will proceed to The Salvation Army Family Store at 302 Broadway. Toys will be distributed on December 14th in Hannibal and December 15th in Quincy.
Toy Runs have become a part of many HOG chapters’ community efforts world-wide and often include hundreds of motorcycles, if weather cooperates. Good weather or bad, this year’s Toy Run will take place. Salvation Army Major Andrew Miller will participate in the ride.
