I’ve had the opportunity to help promote and make vinyl decals for the NW Toy Run the last few years.  I’ve been in attendance since 2006 and have yet to miss a year.  This year thanks to 1000’s of cars from all over the northwest, over $4,100 and 6000 toys were donated to the Toys for Tots.

The Toy Run started out in 2004 and used to be a small group of cars that would meet up and drive to a designated location to donate toys.  Since then the event has grown tremendously.  Three years back the run went from Federal Way, Washington to Olympia.  With over 600 cars, driving down I-5 arriving congesting the exit into Olympia it was decided, the event had reached capacity and a new location was needed.  Thanks to Pacific Raceways, the Northwest Toy Run found a new location.

All in all, the Toy Run is a huge success and has been growing considerably every year.  Thanks to all the automotive enthusiasts in the Northwest who have graciously donating time, money and toys to make a child’s Christmas, this year and years to come!
