A note from the President of the
Sturgis Toy Run
3/27/15


Weather was an issue last year, so numbers were down.  Unfortunately we can't control that.  I would like to say thanks to our working staff for all their help, our sponsors and the attendees, we couldn't do this without you.  Something new this year:18-20 year olds will be admitted.  We are working on a well-known band for this year.  Watch for a press release on March 31.  We are accepting new volunteers-come to one of our meetings if you're interested.  We meet on the first Saturday of each month at 1:00 pm at our office on M66 at Wait Road.You must be at least 18 years old.  Our new flyer will come out soon.  Our Run will be Sept. 10, 11 and 12th this year, hope to see you there.

Celebrating 32 years of caring

Welcome to the home page of the Sturgis Toy Run! A non-profit organization that holds an annual motorcycle rally & weekend long event in Sturgis MI every September. Our goal is to brighten Christmas for the less fortunate right here in St.Joseph County & surrounding areas. The Sturgis Toy Run makes this possible by teaming up with the Salvation Army to help distribute all September donations in time for Christmas.

So how did it all begin?
Back in 1983, five guys were in a fellow bikers' garage working on a bike and drinking a few beers. The subject came up at one point about kids going without at Christmas time. "What could we do to help with the problem?", somebody asked. Someone else came up with the idea of putting together a Toy Run. It would also help give a better image of local bikers. They kicked the idea around with their wives and from there, the Sturgis Toy Run was born.
