Shriner's Hospital Toy Run, Florida

Come join us for a worthy cause with beautiful weather forecatsed for Saturday. Local group stressed all are welcome for the sportbike twisty (almost!)run through the rural roads of Brooksville. The local group may consist of 15-40 sport bikes if its like usual, however the main event will consist of hundreds of motorcyclists with police blocking off a lane of interstate 75 and the city of Tampa as we approach. I bolded the main benefit and takeaway for us, and this event costs nothing except a toy.

Meet us in Tampa 12/12/09 @ 7-11 off Fletcher and 56th st. @ 9:00. Kickstands up at 9:30.



Main event:

quote:

Santa will lead hundreds of motorcyclists from Brooksville, Fla., to Shriners Hospitals for Children - Tampa on Saturday, December 12th, during the 20th annual Motorcycle Toy Run. Each motorcyclist will bring new, unwrapped presents to give to patients.


The ride begins at 11:29 a.m. sharp in the parking lot at the southeast corner of Truck Route 50 and Highway 41 in Brooksville (near Walgreens Pharmacy). Police escorts will accompany Santa and the riders on their trip to bring holiday cheer to patients at Shriners Hospital. The toy-bearing pack is expected to arrive at Shriners Hospital-Tampa between 12:30 p.m. and 12:45 p.m.


“The Motorcycle Toy Run is definitely a highlight of the holiday season for our patients and families,” said hospital administrator Alice Lanford. “It’s also a rewarding experience for the motorcyclists, hospital staff and volunteers who see the children’s faces light up as motorcyclists cruise through the front parking lot with stuffed animals and presents strapped on back."

Unfortunately this one is rained out - a "wash"

If they don't reschedule it, I'll deliver Cinderella on a different day. I'm hoping they reschedule, or the kids will be out a LOT of toys.
