| 17/12/2008

(CNS): A collaboration between local rock station, 96.5 CAYROCK and LIME the third annual Motorcycle Toy Run on Sunday, 14 December saw more ten 40 bikers collecting a truck load toys for kids in need this Christmas.. “We were thrilled with the outpouring of support that we received from the local community – the generosity was overwhelming,” said 96.5 CAYROCK’s Brad Bregani.

“It was hugely rewarding to be involved in an event that directly benefits the children of Cayman, especially those who are less fortunate. We are also grateful for the enthusiasm and support that our riders received as they traveled along collecting donations – it was a memorable day for us all, and an annual event that we continue to hold close to our hearts.”  

Collecting donations along the way, over 40 riders met in the parking lot of Boatswain’s Beach, and between then rode through West Bay, along the length of Seven Mile Beach and through South Sound – continuing all the way to East End and looping around with a final stop at Kaibo. Riders travelled on motorcycles, mopeds, scooters, choppers and hogs. The 96.5 CAYROCK monster truck ‘Rockzilla’ and the X107.1 van also joined in the ride to ease the burden of carrying all the donations collected.  

Leading up to the day of the ride, the local community was encouraged to deliver donations to specified locations along the course. Amassing over a truck-load full of toys, the collection was later presented to the Lion’s Club of Grand Cayman which will be hosting a kids’ party on the 21st of December. At the party, the Lion’s Club will be distributing the donated gifts to less fortunate youngsters

“With an ongoing commitment to making the Caribbean a better place, LIME was eager to collaborate in this charitable endeavor with both 96.5 CAYROCK and the Lion’s Club – each playing key roles in making this event a success,” said LIME Events Manager Julie Hutton commented. “It was both fun and rewarding to do our part to make Christmas as special as possible for the kids of Grand Cayman.”

dms Broadcasting Network Promotions and Marketing Manager Phil Vinciullo said the event was  a roaring success. “Everything went without a hitch from ideal weather conditions to unwavering support from the community through their donations,” he said.

“As always – it is a team effort and we would like to give huge thanks to all the sponsors – particularly LIME, the Royal Cayman Islands Police for the escort, as well as of course, the riders and the community for their support. We look forward to making next year even bigger and better!”

Sponsors for the event include All Star Entertainment Cayman Ltd, LIME, Lion’s Club of Grand Cayman and Paradise Riders Motorcycle Association, and also Boatswain’s Beach and Dunkin Donuts who helped kick-start the morning. For more information visit www.cayrock.ky .
