Amlings Cycle 9th Annual Holiday Toy Ride
Posted by Joe Reichert on October 29, 2011
Oh Come All Ye Cyclists!
The time has come to once again pull a Dreamer Designs trailer full of toys for the kids. The 9th Annual Amling's Cycle Holiday Toy Ride is ON! Mark your calendar for Friday December 9th, 2011, at 6:30 am!
We are really excited about this year's ride and have already received a tremendous amount of support from Niles and surrounding communities.
An example is the new website for the ride! Check out toyridechicago.com. You can register for this years ride, check out our awesome sponsors, and view photographs and videos from past years rides. This new website will be constantly evolving, check back often for updates on this years rides as well as more content from our past events. A big "shout out" to the great guys at EtherCycle for making this part of the dream a reality. Thanks guys!
We will once again be riding from Amlings to Mystic Celt to meet representatives from the US Marine Corps who will load up a truck with the donations for Toys for Tots.
The economic conditions of the past two years have hurt the Marines and other charities in their quest to make the Holidays a little brighter for kids that are less privileged. Let's rally round this effort and make this the best Toy Ride ever! This year our goal is to donate 1,500 toys!
As in years past, we are also looking for volunteers to help us set up bike trailers and load the toys. If you can't ride that day or volunteer before the event, consider starting a toy drive at work or have your kids pick one toy they would like to donate to children less fortunate.
Join the Amlings Cycle community in this wonderful event and bring a smile to a young child's face this holiday season. You can still register to ride or volunteer behind the scenes by clicking here.
Thanks for your continued support of our event. It really means a lot to so many people.
