Thank you to all who helped make it run so smoothly.

This year's Toy Run, the 26th Annual, was held on a new date. Sunday October 29, 2006. Considering the weather pattern of the last few years we wanted to hold the run a little earlier in hopes of making it safer and more enjoyable for all. It turned out to be a windy day!! But, considering the new date and the wind the turnout wasn't huge but it wasn't to bad either. We had 817 bikes ride down to the hospital and visit, pass out toys and spend time with the clients of the Bernard Fineson Developmental Center. As always, their eyes lit up and there were smiles from ear to ear, and as alway, our hearts were also a little lighter and our smiles a little bigger!! Thank to all who made it such a special day!!
