23rd annual

The 23rd Annual Wayne Kash Memorial Biker's Toy Run will be held at noon on Saturday, Oct. 5, starting at the La Junta Walmart parking lot and ending at the Rocky Ford Elks Lodge. Admission for the ride is one new, unwrapped toy valued at $5 or more. According to Jody Bracy, without the community's help and support of the Biker's Toy Run and Toy Dance there will be many children in the lower Arkansas Valley who will not have a Christmas. Last year with the Memorial Run was able to help 702 children in the communities of Crowley County, Otero County and Bent County. Everyone is welcome to come and join in the fun! It doesn't matter if you ride or drive. The Memorial Run welcomes everyone to come help out the children who otherwise wouldn't have a Christmas.
