The Toy Run returns on December 12

Share Canberra's trusted news:

THE ANNUAL Canberra and Region Motorcyclists Toy Run, organised by the Motorcycle Riders Association ACT, is on again at Old Parliament House, and will support the Salvation Army and St John’s Care.

The annual Toy Run marks 35 years of fundraising by the motorcycling community to aid those less fortunate during the festive season, and has raised tens of thousands of dollars in cash and gifts over the years.

Over 1,000 bikes and riders are expected to gather at Old Parliament House on Saturday December 12 from 08:00am for breakfast in the lead up to the actual ride-out procession, which commences at 10:00am.

“Riders are invited to dress up for the ride and sponsorship is provided to reward them for the best decorated bike, rider and pillion,” a spokesperson said.

“To add to the fun of the morning, we have two perpetual trophies: one is awarded to the club with the biggest attendance and the other to the largest corporate group entry.

“The ACT community is invited to come along, support the riders and see the decorated bikes and riders! You can meet the riders at Old Parliament House before they leave, watch them ride along Adelaide Ave or join them for the presentation of gifts back at Old Parliament House. You too can bring a gift or make a donation and participate at Old Parliament House as every dollar raised or present given will benefit Canberrans in need.
