What started with 8 guys delivering a few toys to the Salvation Army on their bikes, just before
What started with 8 guys delivering a few toys to the Salvation Army on their bikes, just before Christmas, in 1984, now attracts upwards of 1500 motorcycles to Port Alberni, on the third weekend of September each year.
Cheer on the many motorcyclists as they travel in solid formation through the Alberni Valley on the Toy Run, delivering a massive haul of toys for children in the community—where child poverty is among the highest in British Columbia.
