ABATE Hosts Toy Drive for Local Children in Need

Nearly 100 motorcyclists gathered to donate toys and time at this year’s ABATE of Colorado District One Toy Run.

ABATE, which stands for “A Brotherhood Active Towards Education,” is a nonprofit motorcycle rights organization. For almost 15 years, the organization has been organizing a toy drive to help community kids have a happier Christmas.

On October 19, motorcycle enthusiasts arrived with their friends and family to donate their toys, time and money. The Fort Morgan Police Department escorted participants from the Walgreens in Fort Morgan to Platte Avenue and then east to Brush.

The run ended at Shooters, a restaurant in Brush that provided chili for the event. Ehrlich Toyota East graciously donated a Toyota pickup to transport the toys to their final destination.

ABATE announced that toys would be donated to various local children’s charities. In the past, toys were donated to local fire department programs and the Morgan County Sheriff’s Department’s toy program.

Motorcyclists have a long history of using their hobby to promote noble causes. As an avid supporter of Colorado’s motorcycle community, Metier Law Firm has supported numerous rides and rallies in recent years, including a Children’s Hospital Toy Run in 2011.
