Toy Run 2022 - Media Release
  The MRASA Toy Run 2022, will be held on Sunday December 11th. The Covid-19 restrictions are now in the past and the MRASA Toy Run Committee is planning for the usual full Toy Run. St Vincent de Paul (Vinnies) collect the toys and donations for distribution at Christmas.

Once again, we are using Victoria Park as our starting point. We thank our partner SA Government - Think Road Safety, sponsors and supporters.

There will be stalls at Victoria Park, including SAPOL, First Care Medical Ambulance, coffee van, BBQ and Vinnies. Due to increasing costs, Vinnies have asked for the Victoria Park venue be the major collection point, for your convenience and to avoid damage to your donations.

Santa will depart Victoria Park at 11am and lead a scenic ride through the hills culminating in a motorcycle show and funfair at Callington.

At Callington, we are planning stalls with a motorcycle related theme, bike club displays, food vendors, live music and the jolly gentleman himself, Santa. There will also be a toy collection point at Callington.

Please bring a gift or give a monetary donation, so Vinnies will be able to give, on your behalf, to South Australian children in need, this Christmas.

More than a ride, It's for the Kids.
