37th Annual TOY RUN CAPE TOWN 2019


The Toy Run is South Africa’s largest motorcycle ride, and it’s all for charity. Every year at the end of November, tens of thousands of bikes rally together for give joy to the needy children of South Africa. Thousands of toys are strapped to bikes and paraded through the major capital cities.

Please support Toy Run Cape Town on Sunday 24th November 2019


Whether you donate toys & gifts or funds, you immediately change the lives of children in need in homes, orphanages, places of safety and hospitals around the Western Cape – YOU can make the difference! The Toy Run Cape Town needs more toys to be donated – LOTS more.

AND although we primarily ask for the donation of toys and gifts to the Toy Run, we also need funds to run the event, to pay for the logistics involved with the event and the charity. Unfortunately, while many very generous companies donate their services at cost to the event, there are still costs (traffic control, safety and security, fencing, tents, entertainment, permits, etc)

Please help us help the children – You can easily donate! If you use Snapscan, simply scan the code below and donate or EFT your donation to Toy Run® Nedbank Acc 1676016228  Hout Bay Branch No 167609. Proof of payment can be faxed to 0867329717 or emailed to donation@toyrun.co.za


So PLEASE consider a small donation to help us reach our goal of R200 000

We are also raising funds to support Zanokhanyo Children’s Safety Home


Any excess funds will be used to purchase additional toys and gifts for the many hundreds of homes, orphanages, places of safety, hospitals, organisations and disadvantaged communities that rely on the Toy Run to provide toys and gifts for the children in need.
