Knowing it's a challenge to keep a long string of motorcycles together while navigating through traffic, the Texas City Police Dept. and the Galveston County Sheriff’s Office escorted the run and did an outstanding job keeping all the riders safe.
Almost 100 riders delivered toys and supplies to the patients and their families.
