Santa Claus will roll into Statesboro via motorcycle once again as the Southern Thunder Cruisers bring him along for the ride Saturday during the annual Santa’s Toy Run toy drive. This is the 15th year of the event, and motorcycle riders from all over are encouraged to join in a countryside cruise around Bulloch County, ending in downtown Statesboro, said Curtis Gay, event organizer and member of the Redeemed Riders, Statesboro’s chapter of the Christian Motorcycle Association. Riders are asked to bring along a new unwrapped toy (or monetary donation) to help families whose children might not otherwise get any toys for Christmas due to financial limits, he said.
