Prince George Toy Run Goes Sunday
Prince George, B.C. – Motorcycle riders will be donning their lids along with textiles or leathers on Sunday for the 2016 Prince George Toy Run.
Despite a 60% chance of showers in the forecast there is expected to be a good turnout for tomorrow’s run. There always is, because the ride is held for a great cause, collecting toys for the Salvation Army to distribute to kids at Christmas.
Riders of all motorcycle makes will be gathering in the parking lot at CN Centre tomorrow morning and heading out on the road at about noon.
The Salvation Army will have a food truck in the parking lot with chili, coffee and deserts available by donation. And riders and those wishing to drop off a donated item are asked to consider all ages, from infant to teen, when choosing a toy.
Stuffed toys are great and certainly welcomed but other items that can be considered include things like skateboards, footballs and soccer balls, hockey sticks, hair straighteners, sketch books, art supplies, gift cards or whatever else might catch your eye.
The Toy Run will travel up to the Hart, then back to CN Centre. Organizers do a great job with traffic control for this event and motorists are asked to permit the procession to proceed safely along its route.
