Santa on a motorcycle

Sometimes Santa Claus doesn't always use a sleigh. Sometimes he rides a motorcycle. Still, the objective is the same -- to make the holidays happy for all children, no matter what their economic circumstances.

About 100 motorcycle enthusiasts gathered this past weekend in Clarksburg to raise funds for the 21st annual HardTimes Benefit for Kids.

Sunday's toy run was only part of the group's year-long effort to raise money for Christmas toys. This year they raised $7,000, which will be spent at a local store and then distributed to area families that have been pre-selected by Harrison County schools.

"I feel real good about this," said one biker, dressed as Santa. He should. Thanks to the efforts of HardTimes, which is affiliated with the U.S. Marine Corps Toys for Tots program, a lot of underprivileged kids are going to have a very happy holiday.

If they can hear us over the roar of the engines, we'd like to say thank you.

Today's editorial reflects the opinion of the Exponent editorial board, which is comprised of James G. Logue, Kevin S. Courtney, Patrick M. Martin, Matt Harvey, Nora Edinger and J. Cecil Jarvis.
