Bikers get ready for Toy Run

2016-10-27 06:00

The local biking community supporting the Toy Run over the past four years, has raised R750 000, making a meaningful difference in the lives of many children.

The 25th Port Elizabeth Toy Run will take place on Sunday, November 27th.

Raffle tickets remain affordable at R5 each with a chance to win either a 125cc Sym Crox motorbike or weekends away.

The bikers’ mass ride starting point is at Hunters Retreat Hotel, Kabega Park.

The mass bike ride departs at 10:00 en route through the city to the Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium where a huge after party will be held.

The entrance is R50 per person and will include a 25th year commemorative badge.

Donations and soft toys can be dropped off at all Klinicare pharmacies across the Metro. Raffle tickets will once again be available at Pick n Pay Penford in Uitenhage.

The six beneficiaries of the 2016 Toy Run are Sinethemba Children's Care Centre Korsten, Mercy Sisters Addo, Imfundo Educare Malabar, Dora Nginza Hospital Paediatric Burn Unit, Republiek and Cotswold primary schools.
