The toy run is officially "The Ulysses Club – Sunshine Coast Toy Run". It's now in it's 23rd year. The Ulysses Club is a social club for men & women over the age of 40 that have a common interest in motorcycles & motorcycling. We currently have over 15,000 members Australia wide. We have branches in all states & over 10 countries overseas.
Our toy run usually helps over 1,000 families on the coast that otherwise wouldn't have anything to put under the Christmas tree for their kids. We help children of all ages. Please don't forget that "children" means kids that could be up to 16 years of age. Teddy bears & dolls for little kids is great, but if you can, please also give a gift for an older child as they always seem to get forgotten at this time of year.
All the presents are proudly distributed by The Salvation Army. The date for the run is December 2nd, 2018 & it starts at 9.00am, with registrations from 8am.
Over the years we have averaged about 350 bikes with 400 riders & pillions. With a bit more publicity we hope to crack the 500 mark. The run is free of charge & anyone that has a registered motorcycle & valid licence is invited to attend. We do sell commemorative badges for $10 & they tend to sell out pretty quickly.
The public is also invited to come down on the morning, drop off an UNWRAPPED present, look over the bikes & chat with the riders.
If the public would like to help but can't make it on the day they can drop off their gift, again UNWRAPPED, at Kawana Shoppingworld's Customer Service Kiosk anytime from mid November to December 1st.
The departure point for the ride is from the Kawana Shoppingworld car park, we then ride through Mooloolaba (seafront), along Aerodrome Rd, Bradman Ave, over the river to Mudjimba, David Low Way to Coolum, them a quick blast back along the motorway, ending at the Kawana Surf Club for drinks, a sausage sizzle & a leisurely afternoon.
All participants, helpers & volunteers go into the draw to win a two night accommodation package, with great thanks & proudly supplied by, Ivory Palms Resort, Noosaville. So make sure you fill out the free entry form at registration. We also have two $100 vouchers for the best decorated bike which is proudly supplied by Kawana Shoppingworld.
