BBQ Fundraiser for Teddy Bear Run

Posted: Updated:
BILLINGS -

For the last 20 years, the Billings Goldwingers Motorcycle Club takes a two day trip to Spokane to deliver toys and teddy bears to kids at the Shriner's Children's Hospital. It's called the Teddy Bear Run.

Saturday, Bikers held a barbecue fundraiser at Wal-Mart to raise money to buy the gifts. Riders say they look forward to the Teddy Bear Run every year.

"The anticipation is just awesome. You can't even put it into words. This will be our first year going but the people that have come back has made us want to go. And they say it's just an experience you don't want to miss."

If you'd like to donate toys or teddy bears, you can drop them off at the Shrine Auditorium until June 21st.
