The 38th Annual Wichita Toy Run Celebration is November 5th 2017
The Lineup begins at 9:00 am at Lawrence Dumont Stadium. The motorcycle procession will leave Lawrence Dumont Stadium at 1:00 pm and will be escorted by Wichita Police Department and Sedgwick County Sheriffs Officers to Hartman Arena. Santa will be at the head of the procession followed by the Wichita Toy Run Color Guard. The entire procession will be followed up by the American Legion Riders Post 136 and their spectacular display of American Flags.
The Wichita Toy Run is open to anyone who would like to participate on a motorcycle/trike. Each participant is asked to bring a new unwrapped toy/item for a child up to age 14 or a cash donation.
Participants will present their gifts to the Salvation Army and US Marines representatives at Hartman Arena.
There will be a $5 chili feed and lots of donations and door prizes.
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.
