32nd Annual Vancouver Toy Run
This event raises much needed toys and funds to provide underprivileged families assistance at Christmas time. It is one of the most important toy raising events in the Lower Mainland and it directly supports 10 local Christmas Bureaus.
Please come out and show your support. It is a really fun opportunity to give back to your community!
The entry fee is a new child's toy wrapped in plastic or a monetary donation.
The toy run will leave Coquitlam Centre at 10:00 am and proceed to the Pacific National Exhibition (PNE) grounds in full parade style.
Limited commemorative pins are available.
The Lower Mainland Christmas Bureau kindly requests more sport and educational gifts. They also ask that there would please be no stuffed toys, as they already have a very large supply. There is always a great need of items for teens and preteens some suggested items are music gift certificates, cd walkmans, blow dryers, curling irons, make up kits, and store gift certificates.
This event goes rain or shine!
