Hug-A-Thon is wrapping up


ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) – The 4-day charity Hug-A-Thon is wrapping up.

Tim Harris, the owner of restaurant “Tim’s Place” is well known for his hugs.

He teams up every year with both the Bernalillo County and Albuquerque Fire Department’s random acts of kindness charity, an organization geared to helping out kids in need.

Last year he gave out more than one-thousand hugs, and raised around $5,300.

Harris says their goal is to hit 2,000 hugs and he is almost there.

Last we spoke, Tim had collected nearly 1,127 hugs.
