OMRA Christmas toy run goes Sunday in Penticton

32nd annual OMRA South Okanagan Toy Run starts Sunday at the Peach


About 100 bikers are converging on the Peach at Rotary Park Sunday morning for the start of the 32nd annual South Okanagan Toy Run.

Organized by the Okanagan Motorcycle Riders Association (OMRA), the event raises money and collects toys.

“The run is basically to collect toys and donations for people not so fortunate, so they have something for Christmas,” said OMRA president Tom Cook. “Everyone is welcome, riders and non-riders.”

The Lions Club is providing coffee, juice and muffins starting at 9 a.m. and are serving hamburgers at the end of the ride at 1:30 p.m. at park.

The toy drops are at Rotary Park and the first stop on the ride is at Summerland Secondary School at 10:15 a.m.

The group then travels to the Oliver A&W for an 11:15 a.m. stop and another one on the way back at 12:15 p.m. at the former IGA store in Okanagan Falls.

Everything collected will go to the St. Vincent De Paul Society in Penticton for distribution.

Tax receipts are available on request for donations of $25 and over.
