MotorCops for Kids Toy Run
Held in November, this is an event sponsored by the Garland Police Traffic Division to raise money and toys for needy children. Motorcycle riders from around the area are taken on a police escorted ride through Garland, Rowlett and Rockwall. Admission for the ride is an unwrapped toy and/or money. A worthwhile event and think about it, how often to you get to ride and have a police escort. The Toy Run begins at Dallas Harley-Davidson on LBJ at W.Centerville Road in Garland.
