KSAL StaffNovember 23, 2014

A blustery mix of cold, wind, and rain did not deter several hundred bikers from roaring across Salina Sunday afternoon. For the 28th year in a row area bikers collected and delivered toys for Salina children.

The temperature was hovering around the freezing mark, the wind was howling, and the rain was falling as the Toy Run began with a long line of riders parading out of the Salina Central Mall parking lot carrying their toys. A trailer full of Harley Davidson children’s riding toys was part of the group, as was a trailer hauling a big, bright box full of toys donated by employees of Philips Lighting.

Though all of the motorcycle riders and their passengers were dressed for the weather, many were also colorfully dressed for the season. Santa riding in an ATV, along with a couple of Salina Police officers appropriately enough riding Harley Davidson motorcycles, led the way.

The procession’s first stop was at the Emmanuel Foursquare Gospel Church to drop off toys. They then headed to Harley Davidson Salina for a chili feed.

The bikers weren’t the only ones braving the cold. Hearty citizens lined up along some of the route to wave and offer support.

All of the toys collected as a part of the Toy Run event will be donated to the Ashby House and to the Domestic Violence Association of Central Kansas.
