The People Helping People Toy Run would like to take this time to say Thank You to everyone that volunteered their time, helped, cooked, cleaned, provided space, provided music, donated money and to all the riders/participants.  This year we were able to raise $3,965 in monetary donations from sponsors and riders.  We collected 41 toys this year.  All money and toys will be split between the Cherokee Christmas Stocking and the Jackson County Christmas Store.  Every one of you have big hearts and you do this so that children in Jackson County can have a good Christmas. Sgi Nigada for everything you do.

Thank you:
