2014 Children's Hospital Toy Run

The toy run this year is June 28th. We will meet at Sports Authority Field, Parking lot E at 8 a.m. and will depart as a group for the hospital at 8:30. This toy run is open to all vehicles. Last year we were badly outnumbered by the Corvettes so lets try to do better this year.

If you can't make the toy run but wish to donate a new, unwrapped toy(s) PM me (Tom) if you're in the Denver metro area or John (Sinister6) if you're in Colorado Springs and we will make arrangements to pick up the toys.

There is also more information on the Facebook page "Corvette Toy Run".

There is a list of toys needed here: http://www.childrenscolorado.org/Fil...st-Ongoing.pdf

If we make just one sick child smile this toy run and car show will have been worth it and the last few years this event has brought smiles to hundreds of sick kids.



Thanks to all of you who attended the meet and greet in Colorado Springs on May 4th that raised money for toys for the kids and a huge thanks to John for all the work in organizing and obtaining sponsors.

We'll be at the other event this same weekend. But we will be sure to get some toys to you.
To those that haven't attended, I would like to say that this event is very worth while and when you see those wonderful little faces point and smile at all the rigs it is truly a warm fuzzy!!!!
I would be there in a minute if I was not already committed to another charity event.
Can't wait to see the pics from this year. Last year they filled the donation room top to bottom and it was completely AWESOME!!!

I'm not sure I will be in town or not, but I hope to make this. It was nice to see the kids outside enjoying the fresh air and sunshine last year. I remember seeing them smile and point as they looked at Terry's and Edwin's jeep. Hats off to you Tom. You made this happen.

We will set up a collection box for toys for those that will be at Set Them Free that weekend. I will make sure the toys get down to children's hospital after the event.

The children's hospital played a huge role in my little nephews life when he was born weighing just over 1 pound. This is a great cause and I wish it was on another weekend so I could attend again.

This is the first time I've participated in this event. Is there something I should do to get people at work to donate toys?

I put up the flyers at my work and sent out global emails. If people donate stuff you wont be able to give em anything so they can wtite it off or anything.
