The Thunder Alley ninth annual Stomp’n Toy Run roared into Barriere on Saturday, Aug. 27, with 93 rods/bikes from throughout the region.

Riders gathered in front of AG Foods, where they could enjoy a cup of coffee from the Barriere Food Bank table before they moved out. The bikes then drove around area subdivisions collecting donations of cash, or toys and gifts for kids up to age 15, for Barriere Food Bank’s Christmas hamper program, which they have now supported for nine years.

The run ended in Bradford field, where fun bike games took place throughout the afternoon, followed by a dinner and dance at the Legion.

 

An initial report has it that some $5,300 was raised. Organizers Barb and Paul Morris, and Stacey and Al Fortin say a big thank you to everyone who helped and supported this event.
