Cape Town Toy Run

Saddle up for the largest motorcycling charity event in the country and, arguably, the world: the Cape Town Toy Run. Taking to the streets on Sunday, 24 November 2013, this annual teddy-trek sees bikers and motorcycles adorned with toys rev through the city’s roads to brighten up the lives of little ones over the festive season. Starting at two locations (the GrandWest Casino and Makro in Ottery), the yearly expedition ends at Maynardville Park in Wynberg, where toys for underprivileged children up to the age of 18 are collected for distribution to orphanages, homes, shelters and hospitals. What’s more, participants and the general public are invited to attend the end-point celebration and enjoy carnival fare and brews in the beer garden as well as live music and comedic entertainment.

While there is no actually entrance fee to the end-point celebration, there is a STRICT no toy, no entry policy. Participants and members of the general public who fail to bring along something for little ones will either be asked to make a cash donation or simply turned away.
