Toy Run volunteers are seeking donations to support the local Christmas Bureau. The Toy Run will come to Mission on Sunday

The 28th annual Central and Upper Fraser Valley Toy Run will roll into town on Sunday, Oct. 19, collecting toys to help local kids have a Christmas.

The event is free, but volunteers ask attendees to bring new unwrapped toys, and they will receive a pin. Financial donations will also be accepted.

The toys will be distributed through the Christmas Bureau at Abbotsford Community Services, and gifts will go to children in Abbotsford, Chilliwack, Hope, Mission and Agassiz.

The event started in 1986 by Barney Hopkins. Sr. and his wife Lenore, and the event is still being managed by the Hopkins family, volunteers and friends.

Motorcyclists can assemble in Chilliwack at Sears on Luckakuck Way, with riders meetings at 9 a.m. and leaving at 9:15 sharp. The meeting point in Mission will be at the former Liquidation World on Horne Street, with a departure time of 9:45 a.m. In Abbotsford, all groups will meet at the Abbotsford Auto Mall on Mt. Lehman Road then head to the Ag-Rec Building.

The bikes will parade in about 10:15 a.m., arriving at the Ag-Rec Building in Abbotsford, at 32470 Haida Drive.

The event will run rain or shine, and people who don’t ride can bring their families by car to the Ag-Rec Building to see the ride.
