Bay Area motorcycle clubs deliver toys to pediatric patients at SF General

A group of Bay Area motorcyclists will donate gifts and sing carols at the Zuckerberg San Francisco General Hospital this weekend, as part of the 33rd Annual Dudley Perkins Toy Run.

Thirty-three years ago motorcyclist Thomas Perkins was taken to General after an accident. After he recovered, he recruited 80 of his friends to drop off toys at the hospital on their motorbikes. Thomas’s son Chris now carries on the tradition.

The motorcycle clubs will ride down Potrero Avenue, and arrive at the hospital at 10:30 a.m. on Dec. 4. They will deliver toys and sing carols until noon.

The toys will be given to the pediatric patients in need at San Francisco General, and distributed at the hospital’s annual Children’s Holiday Part on Dec. 15 from 2:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m.motorcycle clubspediatricstoy driveZuckerberg San Francisco General Hospital
