In 2016, 8000 Toys were presented along with $27,000 to the Wichita Toy Run Charities. The need in our community is significant and the Wichita Toy Run is proud to be able to give back during the Christmas Season.  Approximately 30% of the needs for the Salvation Army and Marines Toys for Tots Christmas programs in our community come from the Wichita Toy Run one day event.

Last year there was approximately 2300 riders!

Toys and Cash donations are collected for the Salvation Army Angel Tree and United States Marine Corps Toys for Tots Christmas programs, as well as a cash donation to the Kansas Food Bank.

 As always, any credit goes to the many volunteers that make up the Wichita Toy Run Committee and The Volunteers who assist with multiple tasks on the day of the Run. Without the dedication of these people, The Wichita Toy Run would not be possible.
