The annual K.i.D.S Blanket Run of the Harley Owners Group® is a heartwarming example of the hands-on charity projects regularly undertaken by H.O.G. Chapters.
It all started with a group of Johannesburg Chapter members over 10 years ago. Rather than passively discussing the bitterly cold Highveld winter, they motivated members to get together some blankets and went onto the inner city streets of Johannesburg and delivered them to the people who needed them the most. People – and especially children – living on the streets in the cold.
It has grown into a popular event for ALL bikers and is supported by every H.O.G.® Chapter as well as many motorcycle clubs and biking enthusiasts.
Previously a Gauteng initiative, the K.i.D.S. Run went national on 2nd June, with events in the Western Cape, Eastern Cape, Free State and Gauteng.
