The Editor,

On behalf of the Lower Mainland Christmas Bureau and the 16 local Christmas bureaus we support, we would like to extend a large thank you to the cities of Coquitlam and Port Moody, their engineering and police Services and our many volunteers and residents of both cities for their help with the 38th annual Motorcycle Toy Run.

It takes a large amount of planning, permits and volunteers to put together one of the longest running and largest Charity Toy Runs in Canada. While it is a truly impressive sight to see, the most important part is that we collected approximately 2,000 toys and raised money for those in need. 

Considering that it was raining up to two hours before the start time, it shows the community spirit that over 1,500 motorcyclists either rode the entire route or attended the PNE site to support the LMCB. Thank you again for supporting our efforts.

Chris Bayliss

Executive Director, Lower Mainland Christmas Bureau
