LONG BRANCH, NJ – More than 200 motorcycle riders from the Blue Knights NJ XV and Jersey Shore HOGs rode to Monmouth Medical Center November 22 to bring hundreds of toys to brighten the holiday season for Unterberg Children’s Hospital (UCH) patients.
UCH Medical Director Dr. Meg Fisher was on hand to welcome the riders and Long Branch Police Department and Long Branch Fire Department, who together raised more than $5,000 for the hospital’s Cystic Fibrosis Center.
