In 2002, we received 3,467 stuffed animals and
toys. The majority of the stuffed animals were distributed to the
Children's Hospital the Monday after the ride. We gathered the remaining
stuffed animals and payed to store them, so they could be distributed
throughout the summer, the fall, and into the December holidays.
You should see the children light up and hug a stuffed animal that
you have provided. Thank you for taking such wonderful care of our
