Vancouver Motorcycle Toy Run Celebrates 33 years of giving on Oct. 2nd
On Sunday, October 2, 2011, the British Columbia Coalition of Motorcyclists (BCCOM), in conjunction with the Lower Mainland Christmas Bureau, will be presenting the 33rd Annual Vancouver Motorcycle Christmas Toy Run.
The Toy Run raises much needed toys and funds to provide underprivileged families assistance at Christmas time. This event is one of the most important toy raising events in the Lower Mainland and it directly supports ten local Christmas Bureaus.
The ride leaves Coquitlam Centre (2929 Barnet Hwy) at 10:00 am and proceeds along Barnet Hwy to Barnet Hwy North to Hastings where it ends at the PNE grounds. Entry fee for riders is a new child’s toy wrapped in plastic (preferably a sports or learning toy) or a monetary donation. Please also remember that there are older children in need who have grown out of toys but would enjoy gifts more suitable for their age. Limited commemorative pins will be available to participants.
This is also great fun for families who can come out and set up on the side of the road to watch thousands of motorcycles ride by with Christmas toys strapped to them.
This event goes rain or shine!
