Toy run rounds 29 years of giving

BILLINGS - Twenty nine years of continued donation is a track record not held by many.

Sub zero tempratures and nasty weather on Sunday were not enough to stop the Roaddogs Motorcycle Clubs annual event.

The goal of helping bring joy to children began nearly 30 years ago when the Roaddogs decided they wanted to show the Billings community what the club was all about, puting the stereotype of a biker gang to rest.

"We started doing things for the area community's children, and its grown into what it is today," said Mark "Curley" Helmbrech, a member of Roaddogs.

Those who were not intimidated by the snow and ice rode their motorcycles to deliver the toys.

"They don't cancel Christmas," said Helmbrech. "Our whole goal is to have something under every kid's tree that needs a Christmas present. "

According to the Salvation Army the Billings, the RoadDogs provide 75 percecnt of the toys requested by the organization, and all of the gifts stay right here in our region.

Throughout the year the club sells sponsorships and merchandise to fund the toy drive.

All the toys delivered to Rimrock Mall went to the Salvation Army's Angel Tree.
