Motorcycle Parade

​​

Celebrating our 41st year !

"The World's Greatest Motorcycle Parade" began in 1978 and has since become an annual tradition in Chicago on the first Sunday in December. 
Each year 40,000 to 50,000 motorcycle riders come to Chicago to ride together and donate toys for needy children.
All motorcyclists are welcome to participate in The Parade, provided they meet the following two requirements.  
Every rider must bring at least one new, unwrapped toy to donate, and each motorcycle must display a current license plate.

And please consider becoming a TFT Parade volunteer. It takes many hands to organize The Chicago TFT Parade. Help is always needed.
​Thanks for your support!

Sonny Fox is feeling positive with Gwenn Fox. (3-13-19)
Waiting for transport to university of Chicago. Shouldn’t be too much longer. She is stable and ready to go!
Thank you to everyone for all your prayers and support. I want to personally thank you all!! This has been a very stressful and emotional time for myself and others closest to her. My mom is the strongest person I know and she will get thought this 😊

We are confident this is the next step in the right direction for a full recovery. She is headed to one of the best medical centers in the world and we are very grateful she is going there.
Please continue to keep her in your prayers and keep the support coming ♥️
If anybody would like updates, please feel free to message me or text me.

From Tom Dertz (3-12-19) ...
Gwenn Fox has had multiple surgeries. She just got out of surgery as we speak. If she is stable by the morning, Community Hospital is transferring her out to UofC. She is still in a medically induced coma (day 11). At this point they feel as if they can no longer care for her and she needs a specialist. Prayers needed.
