Each year, as the weather cools and Thanksgiving approaches, bikers all over the Denver-metro area begin to day dream about the Annual Toy Run for Children’s Hospital. It’s a special day that hundreds, even thousands, of bikers come together to bring joy to sick kids and their families.
After emerging from the hospital, Zak discovered that his desire to help others – all others, not just injured motorcyclists – had been rekindled, and he started Clayton PIF (Pay-it-Forward). It has since been renamed Community PIF to better capture the organization’s mission.
I have met a lot of remarkable people in my life, but right now I stand in awe of Dean Gary, founder and organizer of Colorado Freedom Festival, an event that celebrates the men and women who serve in our country’s military forces.
Using the collective power of the tight-knit biker community, this organization helps riders and their families get through the tough times by providing emotional support, financial advice, medical equipment and other services.
