Bikers recognized what matters most – helping kids

Though some people were disappointed when the Wichita Toy Run decided for safety reasons to no longer host a 15-mile motorcycle parade, it was great that so many bikers turned out for the rally Sunday in Delano. The reformatted event allowed people to park their bikes in a closed section of West Douglas, where they could visit with other bikers, listen to live music and eat chili. What didn’t change was the worthy cause. The bikers and others brought toys and donations that will be distributed by the U.S. Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots Program, the Salvation Army and the Kansas Food Bank. Kudos to area bikers for adapting to the change and recognizing what matters most – helping needy kids and families.
