Motorcycle Riders to Donate Toys to Spokane Hospital

Posted: Updated:
BILLINGS -

The Gold Wing Road Riders Association is getting ready to ride out for their annual Teddy Bear Run. This is the group's 21st year hosting the event.

The motorcycle group has spent the year gathering money they've used to buy toys for kids. This weekend, they'll travel to Spokane's Shriners Hospital for Children to deliver the toys.

"It's something for the kids," Betty Bonnett, a Director of the Montana Gold Wing Road Riders Chapter in Billings said. "The kids get the surgeries for free and this is our way of helping out with donating the toys and gifts and everything for the kids."

The Gold Wing Road Riders leave Billings from the Shrine Auditorium Friday at 7 a.m. Anyone who wants to can join the ride to Spokane. Or you can donate to the cause. Donations of toys, games, or stuffed animals can be dropped off at the Shrine before the group leave on Friday. The donations must be new and still have the tags on them.
