Charity Toy Run ®
Reg. No. 00517
Sunday 26 November 2006
UNDER THE AUSPICES OF THE ITALIAN MOTORCYCLE OWNERS CLUB OF CAPE TOWN CHARITY TOY RUN™ TRUST
Now in its 24th year, the annual Charity Toy Run™ has become known, far beyond the motorcycling community, as one of
South Africa's most significant charity events. It's an awesome motorcycle procession and the biggest biker party of the year –
but most of all it is the day when the country's loudest minority opens their hearts to its most silent.
More than 50,000 (yes, that's fifty thousand!) motorcyclists will turn out across the country with toys of all shapes and
descriptions festooning their bikes, to make Christmas a little brighter for disadvantaged children up to 18 years old of all races
in orphanages, shelters, homes and hospitals and in our communities. Cape Town Toy Run® currently distributes to 122
recipient locations and last year (2006) we received a total of 13600 toys here alone!
The event has come a very long way from the 76 free-spirited riders who turned out for Cape Town's first Toy Run™ on the
last Sunday in November 1983. The inaugural Toy Run™ took place simultaneously in Cape Town and Johannesburg; 24 years
down the line, there are Toy Run™’s in major centres and small towns all over Southern Africa, (at the last count there were
more than twenty) including in our neighbouring country of Namibia, hosted by local motorcycle clubs and service
organizations, with the invaluable assistance of the commercial sector.
In Cape Town alone we expect over 6500 motorcycles to take part in the 2006 Toy Run™ ; we invite all riders to join the mass
ride and the celebration at Maynardville after the ride, where the donated toys are collected for distribution in the weeks
following the Toy Run™. Participation in the Toy Run™ requires only that you bring toys!
This year the run will begin from again two start venues, as happened very successfully last year, merging along the route to end
at Maynardville. For the Northern Suburbs, riders can now gather at the parking area at Ratanga Junction. This route will follow
Sable Road onto the N1, via the M5 onto Settlers Way where the processions will combine. From the start at Ottery
Hypermarket the route follows Ottery Road, Kromboom Parkway to Settlers' Way, Union Avenue, Newlands Avenue and
Tennant Road to Maynardville. Spectators are welcome to take up position at one of the many vantage points along the routes,
to truly appreciate the biggest parade of motorcycles ever held in Cape Town and later to join the motorcyclists at Maynardville
to contribute toys.
The Toy Run™ is open to any licensed rider on a licensed and roadworthy motorcycle, provided they donate toys,
collected in the trailers at the end venue. The toy (or toys!) is both an entrance fee and a ticket to Maynardville. This year there
are also great prizes for lucky donators of toys.. Including a fantastic cruise…
The Toy Run™ is administered by the Charity Toy Run™ Trust to protect its good name – the Toy Run™ has attracted its
fair share of imitators, hoping to share in the status of South Africa's premiere motorcycle charity event. The Trustees of the
Charity Toy Run™ Trust support any initiative that brings toys to needy children, but we'd like to point out that the words
"Toy Run™ " are a registered trademark, as is the Teddy Bear logo and may not be used without specific permission from the
Trust. Please contact us if you wish to run a legitimate Toy Run and would like permission to use the trademark.
As the teddy bear insignia is so closely identified with the Toy Run™ , every year we receive a vast majority of soft toys suitable
for young children but there is a desperate need for older children (teenage girls and boys) toys,
Any sports equipment ~ cricket sets, basketball hoops, including balls of any type ~ soccer, tennis, basket, rugby
Costume jewellery & craft kits, toiletries & make-up for older girls
Puzzles & board games
Fun stationery, drawing & art equipment
(Please no toy guns of any sort – these cannot be distributed)
Please note that no private persons or organisations have been granted permission by the Toy Run™ Trustees to collect toys
in the name of the Toy Run™ or on its behalf. Should you wish to donate toys but are unable to attend on the day, please
contact the Convenors directly.
