The 32nd annual Cape Town Toy Run will be taking place at the end of November; bringing together thousands of motorbike riders as they ride across the city to delivery toys to underprivileged children.
This event is part of a nation-wide tradition, which aims to give hope to children in need across various parts of the country. Held near to Christmas, the collection and delivery of toys helps to ensure that the holiday season is filled with the spirit of giving. All riders who wish to participate in this year’s Toy Run need to provide at least one toy in order to enter.
Toys can include any variety of child-friendly items for boys and girls. There will also be a stall for cash donations, where one or more toys can be purchased.
The start venue is Grandwest Casino in Goodwood, with a route that spans across the city into the southern suburbs. More information for riders can be found on the Toy Run SA website (click here).
