Roaddogs Toy Run set record to help Salvation Army

Posted: Updated:

The Roaddogs tout their annual Toy Run as the oldest and biggest in Montana.

A record number motorcycles, 760,  paraded from Fire Station One in downtown Billings to the Rimrock Mall.

“It's a warm feeling and it's really awesome to see everybody come together to help the community out and help the kids for Christmas," said Curley Helmbrecht of the Roaddogs.

The Road Dogs and other clubs take toys to the mall for the Salvation Army. They all bring the gifts inside with the goal of burying the 12 foot Christmas tree. It's a 33 year tradition to give kids a gift for Christmas.

"Put a smile on kids faces on Christmas morning,” said Helmbrecht. “Even if they only have that one present, it helps brighten their day a little better.

“It's a warm feeling and it's really awesome to see everybody come together to help the community out and help the kids for Christmas."

"The compassion of the Roaddogs is wonderful,” said Maj. Trish Simeroth of the Salvation Army. “if it was just a one time thing, it would still be great. but they've been doing this for 33 years. today we want to honor them and say thank you for helping out the kids  in this community in Billings."

The Salvation Army presented the Roaddogs with a plaque in appreciation for all the toy runs.
