Celebrating 21 Years with Cool Duds, Pins and A Pint

It was twenty one years ago that the first benefit Food and Toy Run brought out a few dedicated motorcyclists who wanted to give back to our small community (read the story here). This year marks a milestone anniversary so in addition to an annual t-shirt design and ride pin, in true biker celebratory fashion, you can now raise a glass and toast to the cause with a limited edition pint glass!

Where to get the goods

Your purchase helps fund a complete Christmas meal for 300 families in need. Every purchase supports all that the Toy Run does for our community and keeps the Toy Run free to riders. You may purchase collectable gear on the morning of the event or you can order through the website (Website Minimum Order is $15) . Here’s how:
