Teddy Bear Ride delivers toys to kids at Akron Children’s in style


AKRON, Ohio - Motorcyclists from across Northeast Ohio ended their ride from Adventure Harley-Davidson in Dover at Akron Children's Hospital with hundreds of toys.

Riders have to bring a new toy to participate.

Penny's goal for 2019 is 250,000 toys, in addition to $25,000 in donations.

The 2018 ride collected 80,000 items.
