OVERVIEW


Launched in 1982 simultaneously in Cape Town and Johannesburg by the Italian Motorcycle Owners Club (IMOC), the Toy Run™ is now the largest motorcycling-related charity event in Southern Africa and arguably the world. A Toy Run™ is held in over nineteen centres in the Southern African region, hosted by local motorcycle clubs and other organisations, with the invaluable assistance of the commercial sector.

More than an estimated 75,000 motorcyclists turned out across the region with toys of all descriptions adorning their bikes, to make the holidays a little brighter for disadvantaged children of all races in orphanages, shelters, homes and hospitals throughout the country’s communities. The aims of the Toy Run are to improve and enhance the image of motorcyclists and to collect and distribute toys and gifts to less privileged children up to 18 years.

2012 saw the Cape Town event grow yet again with more than 34000 toys being collected by Cape Town alone, and distributed to children via more than 300 organisations throughout the Cape and South Africa.

 

The Cape Town Toy Run® attracts upwards of 15000 motorcycle enthusiasts and approximately another 5000 general public visitors over the duration of the 6-hour event, held the last Sunday of November annually. It is also aligned to the Toy Run® National Forum and has access to a national network, distributing relevant information region-wide.

 

The Cape Town event has achieved iconic status with the City of Cape Town and enjoys extensive media coverage prior to and during the event. Email info@toyrun.co.za for information or sponsorship opportunities
