The roar of motorcycles and the sound of sirens
The roar of motorcycles and the sound of sirens
announced the beginning of the Hillbilly Christmas in
July Ride for the Kids. Hundreds of motorcyclists
LEXINGTON
Motorcycles filed into Harley-Davidson of Pikeville,
KY, for the 8th Annual Hillbilly Christmas in July also
known as the Randy Jones Memorial Ride. Their destination was Shriners
Hospitals for Children® - Lexington and upon their arrival at the county line,
they received a police escort to the hospital. Once there, they were treated
to refreshments and watched a Lexington Fraternal Order of Police
demonstration of motorcycle safety. The next week, the group brought toys
and a donation to the hospital and “Harley Claus” gave each child a present.
“This is why we ride and giving toys and financial support to our hospital is what we do,” said
Jimmy Kinney, a founding member of the charity ride.
