A GREAT ride!

This year our Broken Arrow Corp and Boys & Girl Club is excited to be hosting their 11th Annual Motorcycle Toy Run! For the past few years we have partnered with Bikers Against Child Abuse to make this event a great success. On November 17th, beginning at 10:30a.m., the riders will take Kenosha (71st) all the way through Broken Arrow from Forest Ridge Golf Club to our location on 91st between Aspen & Elm.

If you haven't seen a big run like this before, it's exciting to see the bikers and their bikes entering the parking lot loaded with toys!  Salvation Army supporters greet riders with signs saying "thank you" in gratitude of their contributions to the start of our toy donation season.
“Everyone always has a great time at the Toy Run and the chili dinner,” said Captain Lori Lucas, the Corps officer who heads up the event. “We’re looking for a better-than-ever turnout this year.”
The public is welcome to join on their motorcycles with an unwrapped toy to get the full experience or come in your car and enjoy the festivities at the Corp location afterward.  Our Corp members, along with the Boy Scout Troop 995, will be serving our participants with a chili dinner. It includes Ron's award winning chili, crackers and beverages. And for dessert, the Tulsa Center of Hope kitchen is baking brownies! There will be numerous door prizes and lots of fellowship to start off "the season of giving". Please join us or feel free to stand along the route and show your support! The event will benefit the more than 4,200 families that have already applied for assistance in the Tulsa Area.
