TOY RUN CHARITY (ST)RIDES AHEAD FOR THE CHILDREN
Cape Town, Western Cape, Wednesday 28th October 2020
This, the 38th consecutive year that the Toy Run Cape Town Charity is asking for donations of toys, gifts and financial support for vulnerable children, will be like no other before. RIDE FREE from wherever you choose
For the first time in its long charitable history, the Toy Run CT will not have an organized ‘start’ venue, where the bikers can gather en masse, to lead a parade through the streets of Cape Town to the tune of many decibels of roaring exhausts.
This year instead, to ensure we all stay safe, and to show solidarity for all those healthcare workers and people on the front line of the Covid19 pandemic, the Organizers are leaving it up to individual motorcyclists, groups and clubs to decide from where they would like to ride on Toy Run day.
Riders MUST REGISTER on the event registration website on Quicket, (https://qkt.io/TR2020) in order to be able to say that they participated in this unique Toy Run. Unregistered riders will unfortunately not be officially recognized as being on the 2020 Toy Run Cape Town. All registered participants will go into a PRIZE DRAW.
On QUICKET event website (https://qkt.io/TR2020 ) you can:
- REGISTER FOR FREE to participate in the event
- Purchase a Special Limited Edition Toy Run CT 2020 Commemorative Badge for collection at the event
- Purchase a Toy Run CT Buff / Mask for collection at the event
- Purchase to donate a Toy push-along scooter – Special offer R100 and we get the scooter to the child
- Donate money
As before, the ‘end’ venue is Killarney International Raceway, and participants and the public can still drop off toys and gifts to donate to the children of our communities. At Killarney International Raceway between 10am and 3pm on Sunday 6th December 2020 you can:
- ‘Drive Buy’ a badge at the end venue for R30 OR buy online R30 gets you a special badge and collect it at the end venue with your ticket
This year, more than ever, the children need toys and gifts to provide a small light of hope in what has to be the darkest year in their young lives. While many of us are also suffering the effects of the economic downturn brought on by the pandemic and lockdown, this is an opportunity for you contribute, even with one small toy or gift.
On SUNDAY 6 DECEMBER 2020, gates will open to the public at 10am at Killarney International Raceway in Tableview, the home of motorsport in the Cape. The Toy Run team and volunteers will welcome motorcycle riders and the general public to drop off their donations of toys and gifts throughout the day, until 3pm. The wearing of masks in public is obviously compulsory, but that shouldn’t be difficult for the motorcycling fraternity, which has been riding with helmets, masks and buffs for many years!
A very special limited edition commemorative badge for the ‘Run that Isn’t One’ (not just a year plate) and very appropriately, Toy Run ‘buffs’ / masks will be on sale and available to purchase, both on the registration website on Quicket, if you want to order online for collection at the end venue, and for a ‘drive-buy’ purchase of memorabilia on the day, for the most unique Toy Run Cape Town so far. To ensure you get a badge, please order online as stocks are limited.
You can also purchase a ‘push-along’ scooter for a child for only R100 (normally around R250) – just pay online and a child will get this gift – as easy as a click! You can also visit our sponsor, the Factory Toy Shop @ 250 Voortrekker Rd Parow and purchase a special ‘ Toy Run’ gift bag for R50 or R100 https://www.facebook.com/factorytoyshopcapecc
Unfortunately, due to difficulty of planning under the state of disaster regulations this year, there will be no vendor stalls, live music or Event Arena activities on the day at the end venue.
This will NOT deter the kind-hearted from enjoying their ride or drive to Killarney though, dropping off their gift, and being able to say that their small contribution will make a huge difference in the life of a child …
…and that that they attended the most unusual Toy Run ever…
