Big Texas Toy Run Celebrates 27th Year of Giving

By King Law Firm on December 17, 2012

The annual Big Texas Toy Run was held this year on December 15 and thousands of charitable motorcyclists gathered at Gateway Park for the event. The Toy Run, now celebrating 27 years of meeting the Christmas toy needs of local special needs children, benefits clients of Mental Health Mental Retardation (MHMR) of Tarrant County, according to the Star-Telegram. Participating bikers departed Gateway Park for Lone Star Park in Grand Prairie, where a festive party and concert awaited, and each motorcyclist donated $10 and a gift.

Texas Motorcycle CharityGiant trucks were loaded with, and the motorcycles were strapped with, toys that would make any child light up this holiday season, such as Barbies, dancing Elmos, Play-doh, dollhouses, and tricycles.

The chief of human resources for MHMR Tarrant County states that the toy run has been invaluable in helping provide for the children and families who need help most. The agency provides assistance and services to individuals with mental illness, autism, mental retardation, addictive behaviors, and early childhood developmental issues.

The warm weather and sunshine drew an estimated 15,000 bikers to the event this year, according to organizers. This is a significant change from the 200 riders who gathered at the first Toy Run event in 1985.
