Bikers Donate to Children

Posted: Updated:

Several motorcycle clubs from around Minot took over Oak Park this afternoon for their annual BBQ.

They might look lean, mean and ride in packs, but almost every one is a Mom or Dad.

Some of the clubs are as young as the kids but, others like the Booze Fighters have been around Minot since 1946.

The clubs were joined by a crew of Minot Firemen who made a fire truck available for exploring all day.

Last Christmas, Ice Cold M-C donated $7,000.00 worth of toys to area children.

To keep the fun going year round the BBQ doubles as a kids day, complete with more toys given away.

(Shawn Brown, President of Ice Cold Ryders Motorcycle Club, Minot)"And when we started our club here we talked, what could we do to impact people? And kids was the best thing. We want to teach them young, you know that, they see a guy on a motorcycle, it's not what you see on TV, we're good guys, we're family guys and we just wanna do something fun. For them to have fun, I should say."

Ice Cold's Vice President added that there are no rivalries here -- having the clubs all together is like having one big family gathering.
