Santa Visits Inn on Harley
Santa Claus and his motor officer “elves” returned to the NIH Children’s Inn during the Montgomery County Police Department’s annual Santa Ride on Dec. 8.
Santa began his journey in Germantown, Md., where he traded in his sleigh and reindeer for a Harley-Davidson motorcycle for the trip. Before arriving at the Inn, Santa and his elves made several stops along Rockville Pike, where they collected toys and other gifts from local businesses and organizations to drop off at the inn.
Once they arrived on campus, Santa and his elves were greeted by grateful young patients and their families. NIH’s acapella group, Nerds in Harmony, performed, and Santa gave a speech and took socially distanced photos.
