TOY RUN “For the Kids” PARADE PHILADELPHIA, SUNDAY, November 2, 2014  — A procession of motorcyclists, led by Santa Claus and  Justice Seamus McCaffery, will ride from Spring Garden at Columbus Blvd  to Electric Factory to deliver toys to The United States Marine Corps for their “Toys For Tots” program  for the 34th Annual A.B.A.T.E. “For the Kids” motorcycle toy run. 

 

In the past this motorcycle event’s destination was to the patients of The Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia for thirty years. The motorcyclists will depart from Columbus Boulevard and Spring Garden Street at noon with a police escort and proceed to The Electric Factory of Philadelphia, PA.

 

The motorcyclists are expected to arrive at around 12:30 p.m., when they will donate thousands of toys for the underprivileged children throughout the Philadelphia area. Representatives from A.B.A.T.E. and The City of Philadelphia will then assemble for a brief ceremony in the Electric Factory Center followed by a free concert featuring
Live at the Fillmore. 

 

The run was formed in 1980 with less than thirty riders, but despite the change in size and recognition, one thing has remained constant through the years:  to bring the joy of Christmas to the children and a smile to their faces!

Not A Motorcycle Rider?

This year Toy Run organizers are encouraging spectators to come out along the Parade Route or join us for the free concert at the Electric Factory, to show your support to the bikers who come from all walks in life to help children smile during this Holiday season. This is what makes this event the most important ride of the year!
