**PRESS RELEASE** 2020 ACT and Region Motorcyclist’s Annual Toy Run

Are you having a Toy Run this year?!?

That’s the question we keep hearing, and the answer is: not like previous years, but YES!

Put Saturday 5th December in your calendar, as it’s still on.

The annual Canberra and Region Motorcyclists Toy Run is organised by the Motorcycle Riders Association of the ACT. For the 40th year of holding this event, there won’t be a mass ride setting off from Old Parliament House due to COVID-19 restrictions. Instead, the MRA will encourage motorcycling groups to organise their own rides to make donations.

All goods and money donated will support the Salvation Army and St John’s Care; donation details are listed, and constantly being updated, on the events page. We are working with the Salvation Army to have a safe drop off and will keep you informed.

The annual Toy Run marks 40 fantastic years of fundraising by the motorcycling community to aid those less fortunate during the festive season, and through the generosity of its many supporters has raised tens of thousands of dollars in cash and gifts over the years.

This year, we are inviting riders to meet for their own rides, gather together with toys and donations of cash, wear your best Christmas gear to reflect the spirit of the Toy Run and make donations direct to the Salvation Army and St John’s Care. In past years, decorations have been highly creative and at a standard that would make Santa proud.

We’ll ask the ACT community to look out for and show support for the riders on Saturday 5th December. The Toy Run has long been a highlight for the motorcycle and scooter riders of the ACT district.

We will also encourage members of the public to donate a gift or make a donation in support of the Toy Run, as every dollar raised or present given will benefit Canberrans in need and give a valuable leg up to the Salvation Army and St John’s Care during one of their busiest periods.
