Easter Basket Run

Louisville, Kentucky has an Easter Basket Run every year that I have been fortunate enough to attend for two years now. The run is designed for bikers to bring Easter Baskets to less fortunate families.
 When the Easter Bunny showed up, the kids didn't even notice the hundreds of roaring  Harleys pulling in. They knew the Bunny was there with gifts for them all.
More then two truck loads of baskets were collected at the starting point and brought with the parade of bikes.

The beauty of this run is that unlike most toy runs and other benefits, the children are waiting for us at the end and these gifts are given to the children there. There is nothing better then seeing the smile on a child's face when they receive a gift.
 The Bunny made sure that all the kids there got something.
It is a great feeling to be involved in something like this so if you get a chance to support something like this, don't pass it up.
And if your town doesn't have anything like this, get one started. Remember, it's for the kids, but you may just find out that you enjoy it even more!


  1. I have been fortunate to have help with an Hugh Easter Egg hunt the past two years motorcycles but lots of kids...eggs and food! I know where you're coming from.

    1. The motorcycles aren't the important part. It's all about the kids. It was a fun day on the bikes none the less.
