Celebrating 33 years of caring
Welcome to the home page of the Sturgis Toy Run! A non-profit organization that holds an annual motorcycle rally & weekend long event in Sturgis MI every September. Our goal is to brighten Christmas for the less fortunate right here in St.Joseph County & surrounding areas. The Sturgis Toy Run makes this possible by teaming up with the Salvation Army to help distribute all September donations in time for Christmas.

So how did it all begin? Back in 1983, five guys were in a fellow bikers’ garage working on a bike and drinking a few beers. The subject came up at one point about kids going without at Christmas time. “What could we do to help with the problem?”, somebody asked. Someone else came up with the idea of putting together a Toy Run. It would also help give a better image of local bikers. They kicked the idea around with their wives and from there, the Sturgis Toy Run was born.
