Nastrike Race For Christmas Magic

Posted: Updated:
Wichita Falls city employees were on a race to deliver Christmas magic on Thursday for families who would otherwise gone without.  The fun part of this was all of the deliveries were made on tricycles!

They helped more than 50 families by providing gifts for children and food to prepare for a Christmas dinner.  It was a race to the finish line in order to raise money for this charitable event.

Property Manager Patt Hoffman said they put the event on during the lunch hour for city employees.  He explained all of the money raised is for their Christmas baskets that they put together for employees.

This year’s event featured teams from city departments competing with highly customized tricycles on a specialty designed track.  Each team was comprised of four employees dressed in their favorite racing costumes.
