Starting on a cold Chicago winter day in December 1978, a group of six friends lead by a Vietnam Veteran, jumped on their motorcycles to deliver presents to needy children.
Little did they know that the kindness in their hearts, would become one of the biggest charitable traditions in Chicago. For Twenty-eight years, Chicagoland motorcyclists have joined forces with the United States Marines, to assist their: Toys for Tots program. What started among friends has grown into the Chicagoland Toys for Tots Motorcycle Parade -
It is held on the first Sunday in December...rain, snow, or shine. There is only one rule to participate: You must bring a toy and deliver it on a motorcycle What unifies the thousands of volunteers is their heart felt mission to place a new toy in the hands of a child.
