"Fun Run and Toy Buy"

Posted: Updated:

It may have been a little chilly this morning, but the local Toys for Tots chapter enjoyed breakfast and took a motorcycle ride, and it was all for a good cause. 

The third annual "Fun Run and Toy Buy" started with breakfast at the Blue Collar Cafe this morning. The group then headed  to Walmart to purchase toys for the charity. Around 50 bikers caravanned to the super market, and were ready to spend the money they had raised.

"Giving a lot of needed toys to North Dakota children that could use a really good Christmas," says Jarod Hawk, owner of Blue Collar Cafe. 

"I like to go shopping and I don't have to spend the money but we all donate quite a bit, we pay for our meal that goes towards it, we have donation jars out, we do that, we have a silent auction today I do a lot of bidding on that I like to get a lot of things they have on there," says volunteer, Shelly Couch. 

The toys that were bought today will go towards Christmas presents for children in the surrounding areas.
