Toy Run revving up

Riders collect toys, donations for 100 Mile House Food Bank

An upcoming charity ride is an example of the community coming together for a good cause.

The 100 Mile House 2015 Toy Run takes place Sept. 20.

“We hope to have a lot of bikes show up at the 100 Mile House A&W between 10 to 11 a.m.,” says Tammy Boulanger, one of the organizers.

Kickstands go up and the ride around 100 Mile House starts at 11 a.m. before ending at the 100 Mile House Food Bank to deliver toys and donations.

A small appreciation barbecue put on by the Food Bank volunteers will follow the ride.

Safeway and Save-On-Foods have helped sponsor the barbecue to help alleviate the cost to the Food Bank.
