45th MRASA Toy Run - 10 Dec 2023
Toy Run Mashals
  This year's MRASA Toy Run will be held on Sunday 10th December. An event of this size cannot take place without having enough marshals to help with the huge number of tasks. If you were a marshal at some stage previously, we would love to hear from you again to help with this year's Run. If you have never been a marshal, but would like to help, please contact Cathy or Ebi via the contacts page. Without marshals the Toy Run as we know it will need to change or may even cease. Without marshals and volunteers to help with setting up, managing and closing down the Toy Run the event cannot go ahead. Volunteers are getting fewer each year so if you want the Toy Run to survive, then please volunteer to help out.

Toy Run Marshal Training
  We are desperate for Volunteers this year. There are many positions to be filled. If you are interested, please contact Ian 0427 334 843 or Cathy 0408 853 380.

Training Session 2
Saturday 18th November at 9.30 am. SAPOL training first, followed by MRASA tour of the venue and training. The meeting point (changed) is Fullarton Rd Carpark behind the Heritage Grandstand (near the Britannia roundabout).

Toy Run Ride Coordinator
  Do you know how to organise a large number of riders, to ride in a protective formation? If so, we need you as the person to co-ordinate and instruct the lead groups on how to ride the Toy Run effectively and safely. Please contact Cathy via the contacts page to find out more details on this exciting opportunity.

Cancer Fund-raiser Ride
  The Mid North MRA will be hosting a ride from Wallaroo on Sunday 29th October. This will be a cancer fund raiser. If you want to join the ride, a group will be mobbing up at Ampol at Bolivar from 9.30am for a 10am departure. Antipated ride length for the day for Adelaidians will be around 400km.

National Road Safety Week 2023
  Every year, approximately 1200 people are killed and another 44,000* are seriously injured on Australian roads. Traffic injury is the biggest killer of Australian children under 15 and the second-biggest killer of all Australians aged between 15 and 24. These numbers are growing every year but are preventable if we choose to Drive So Others Survive!.

National Road Safety Week is an annual initiative from the Safer Australian Roads and Highways (SARAH) Group, partnering road safety organisations and Government. The week highlights the impact of road trauma and ways to reduce it.

The launch of the Road Safety Week will be in Perth on 14th May, which will be live streamed. Road safety week runs from 14-21 May 2023. For more details, review the Road Safety Week website.

44th MRASA Toy Run - A big thank you
  The MRASA would like to thank all the public, supporters, volunteers and members who together made the 2022 MRASA Toy Run another great success. St Vincent de Paul is pleased at the number of bikes and the amount of toys. Our thoughts are with the children that were able to celebrate Christmas this year because of the kind donations.
