Santas Anonymous toy run brings in donations for needy families

Toy run a big hit

This past weekend's Santas Anonymous toy run was another success.

Organizer Perry Wainwright says the event brought in "a little over $4,000, plus all the toy donations."

About two carloads of toys were collected.

They'll be distributed to needy families at Christmastime.

"It was a very good run," says Wainwright. "We had more than 200 riders turn out."

They rode on Sunday from the Kal Lake lookout to the Lumby Lions campground.

Wainwright thanked all the participants and sponsors. "Everybody came through again," he said.

Sunday's toy run was the 33rd annual event.
