South Africa Toy Run Details
The Toy Run was originally started by Biker individuals in 1982. Since then well in excess of 350,000 toys collected and distributed to the under privileged in the area now known as Gauteng. In later years the formation of other regional runs were encouraged and assisted providing the same day of fun and excitement and again toys for the under-privileged of other areas. For many of these years the Round Table Service clubs have distributed the toys collected, from the day of the run up to and in many instances ON Christmas Day. It is estimated that over 16,000 motor cycles to the value of R450 million took part in the TOY RUN 2000 and toys in excess of some 25,000 were collected and distributed.
In 1996 the TOY RUN COMPANY was founded and registered as a section 21 company and directors appointed from the organizing committee. The directors, the organizing committee and the distributing Round Tables are comprised of volunteers and no remuneration for the many hours of work is expected by them, or given by the Motorcycle Toy Run Company.
