26th annual Quaid Harley-Davidson Toy Run draws hundreds of participants
Approximately 200 motorcyclists and enthusiasts alike came out to support Loma Linda University Children’s Hospital at the 26th annual Quaid Harley-Davidson Toy Run on Sunday, Dec. 16. The event was held to benefit the kids at Children’s Hospital, providing funding, toys and holiday cheer.
Participants in the ride and attendees donated thousands of new toys, enough to fill a small trailer. All proceeds — including registration fees — were given to Children’s Hospital. Many patients and their families attended the event and were greeted by the enthusiastic bikers.
Dealer owner Glenn Quaid spoke on how some of the best people he knew were found on the backs of bikes.
“We take care of our children,” Quaid said. “We take care of our community.”
Loma Linda Fire Department also attended with a classic fire truck for photo ops, before leading riders through the streets of Loma Linda toward Children’s Hospital.
