With Christmas and the holiday season quickly approaching, there is no better time to participate in charity and give back to those in the community in which you live. This year, the annual CBA Toys for Tots Charity Ride will take place on December 6, 2015, in Matthews, North Carolina. If you are a biker in Charlotte, North Carolina, you are invited to come out and participate in this philanthropic event.
What is the CBA Annual Toy Run/Toys for Tots Charity Ride?
The ride is organized as a fun event for motorcyclists with an altruistic purpose: to collect toys for children in the community who otherwise would not be receiving any. All interested bikers are asked to bring a new, unwrapped toy as his or her registration fee. All toys collected will be donated to children in need.
Who Participates in the Toys for Tots Charity Ride?
All bikers with a valid motorcycle license in North Carolina are invited to join in the Toys for Tots Charity Ride. The motorcycle accident attorneys at The Law Offices of Jason E. Taylor, P.C. will also be participating in the event. We will be bringing our own bus, and running a booth at the event site. At the end of the day, we will pack up and meet the riders at the Harley-Davidson dealership to finish out the day.
The event is being hosted by the Charlotte Concerned Bikers Association and the U.S. Marine Corps.

Safe Riding During the Toys for Tots Event
Of course, motorcyclists’ safety is a big priority during this event. If you want to join in and ride, make sure you have a DOT-approved helmet that fits well, and that any of your passengers are properly helmeted, too. Before riding, double-check to make sure your bike is in working order – check tire pressure, working lights, brakes, and gas levels. Watch the weather the day before the event, and dress appropriately for the conditions.
