On the 27th of November this annual biker charity event has become a classic! Launched in 1982 (simultaneously in Cape Town and Johannesburg) by the Italian Motorcycle Owners Club (IMOC), the Toy Run is the largest motorcycling-related charity event in Southern Africa and Honda Wings Menlyn proudly took part in this year’s Toy Run Nationwide event delivering toys to kids for 35 years.
The Departure took place from Kolonnade Retail Park, Sefako Makgatho Drive, and the huge group drove through to Hartbeespoort Holiday Resort (Impala Bike Rally site), Old Rustenburg Road, Brits, Northwest.
The Gauteng Toy Run collects in the region of 22 000 toys on the day and these are redistributed to service clubs and requesting charities that evening. This enables many of the less fortunate children to receive their gifts in time for Christmas.
These days kids need more than just love, they need toys, stationary, toiletries, books, sports equipment and many other items too and it was a privilege to be part of such a great movement.
These are a few of the groups that receive toys from Toy Run to distribute in their areas in the spirit of giving at Christmas:
Dal Fouche Community Organisation, Mekayla Memorial Street Party, We Care, Christways Religious and Social Services, Igugulethu Place of Safety, Kungwini Welfare Organisation.
