A note from the President of the
Sturgis Toy Run
12/23/12


This year, we were able to give toys to over 1200 kids!!!  We worked with the Salvation Army to give food and toys to over 350 familys, with more than 750 kids benifiting.  With toys that were left, we opened our office at 67014 N. M66, and gave toys to more than 250 kids.  We also helped kids at this time of year with gift cards to agencies in our area.

I would like to thank all of our supporters, from a canned good or a doll, to monetary donations.  Also, thanks to everyone that attended our annual Sturgis Toy Run in September.  We couldn't do this without you.

And finally, to our dedicated staff members, who believe that "no kid goes without" at Christmas time.

I hope everyone has a Merry Christmas, and a safe and happy New Year.

Pat Linnan

A note from the president of

The Sturgis Toy Run:
10/31/2012

Thanks to everyone who attended our run this year.  We couldn't do this without you.  Also, thanks to all our sponsers.  We appreciate everything you do for us.  The kids in our area depend on us to get the toys to them, and all of you make it possible.

We are planning next years run...it will be our 30th, so hopefully a bigger and better one!  If any one has a suggestion or two to make it better, shoot me a line.  More games, more variety in vending, etc.  Hope to see you all next year.  Pat

Celebrating 31 years of caring

Welcome to the homepage of the Sturgis Toy Run of Sturgis, Michigan.

Our mission is to provide toys to children who otherwise would not enjoy the benefits of Christmas. We do this by getting together every year and having a good time while promoting a good image of bikers and biking.

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.
