Santa Claus and his motor officer “elves” returned to the Children’s Inn at NIH during the Montgomery County Police Department’s annual Santa Ride on Dec. 7. 

He took time out of his busy schedule to stop by Germantown, Md. There, 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 youngsters and their families.
