Hundreds Ride Motorcycles for Toy Run

FORT OGLETHORPE, Ga. (WDEF) — Hundreds of North Georgia residents are riding their motorcycles for a good cause.

This is the 29th year for the Catoosa County Toy Run.

The bikers are collecting toys and monetary donations to help area kids have a good Christmas.

They rode their motorcycles from the Fort Oglethorpe Big Lots to Ringgold High School, where they dropped off the toys.

Riders say they look forward to the event every year.

“It’s a blessing to us, and I’m sure it’s a blessing to the kids that receive it, and to the parents, you know, that are maybe on hard times right now, so it helps everyone,” said organizer Mike Gard.

If you couldn’t make it out to the event, it’s not too late to donate.

The Catoosa County Sheriff’s Office is still collecting toys and monetary donations.
