ABOUT THE BIG TEXAS TOY RUN
The Big Texas Toy Run (TBTTR) is a 501c(3) Charity.
The Big Texas Toy Run benefits Mental Health-Mental Retardation (MHMR) of Tarrant County, Metrocare Services (the MHMR in Dallas County), and other children's charities in the Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex. The toys are distributed to thousands of underprivileged and challenged children all over the Metroplex. All funds disbursed are earmarked for educational needs & recreational use only.
Immediately after the toy run, the abundance of toys that are so graciously donated are divided, as equally as humanly possible, by our staff and loaded into trucks to be transported to MHMR of Tarrant County and Metrocare Services, and other children's charities in the Dallas / Fort Worth area where they are distributed, beginning as early as the following day, to thousands of children from all over the Metroplex.
Proceeds are disbursed to MHMR of Tarrant County and Metrocare Services and are earmarked for recreational, and educational use.
2012 marks the 27th Annual Big Texas Toy Run.
Approximately 15,000-20,000 motorcycles rumbled down I-30 from Fort Worth and Dallas to converge on Lone Star Park in Grand Prairie.
An estimated $450,000.00 - $500,000.00 in toy were donated.
BIG BIKES AND BIG HEARTS GO TOGETHER!
The Big Texas Toy Run is proof of this. Since 1985, thousands of gallant bikers in North Texas have joined together each year to put joy in the hearts of children by delivering toys to those in need at Christmas.
