32 Years of Giving
Thirty two years ago a small group of guys who got together on Sundays to ride motorcycles decided to buy some toys and take them to the kids at Children’s Hospital. Now all these years later motorcyclists from all over the state of Colorado meet to ride to the Children’s Hospital in an escorted parade to deliver toys to the kids who are there. This day has become one of the most important days to not only current patients at Children’s but former ones as well as the staff of this very prestigious hospital. If you ask any of the participants they will unanimously agree it is the reason for the holiday season and many leave the hospital that day thankful for the experience!
