Waikato Ulysses Motorcycle Club and the Child Cancer Foundation are combining this Sunday for a Charity Motorcycle Rise based from Te Awamutu. The event starts and finishes at Selwyn park, running from 9.30am until about 11.45am.
Co-ordinators are locals Lou Brown and Graham Smith. Graham has been involved with the charity event, which was previously in the form of the Annual Toy Run, for 15 years and Lou for quarter of a century.
The aim for the 2020 event is to provide a fun, family day for Child Cancer Foundation kids and their families — and the community.
Lou and Graham are hoping to get over 100 bikes, and say there will be a chance for visitors to have a good look at them before the run.
Te Awamutu Rotary Club is assisting with marshalling and Te Awamutu Lions Club will have their Kai Kart on site to provide food and drinks.
Te Awamutu Community cadets will be staffing the crossing areas and helping keep everyone safe.
As well as the bikes expect a display of classic cars and hot rods and sponsor displays, plus for the kids face painting and a bouncy castle.
There will also be a raffle and some stalls, plus live music, including the Te Awamutu Highland Pipe Band.
The ride, a 35-minute circuit from the park, through the main street, around Po¯ kuru and back — led by a Police escort, will leave at about 11am.
