2014 was a great first year for the Peyton Manning Children’s Hospital Annual Toy Ride. 2015 promised to be even bigger and better. The real reward came when we saw the smiles on the kids faces at the Peyton Manning Children’s Hospital . We were excited and honored to have so many great sponsors stepping up and helping us to collect toys and money for this great organization. Some of our awesome sponsors included Harley Davidson of Indianapolis, Andy Mohr Automotive, Rider Insurance, Claddagh Irish Pub & Restaurant, Kelly Law Offices, and Indianapolis Periodontal & Dental Implant Associates. Our activities officer, Jeff Cox and the toy ride committee (Ken White, Bette Gumerson, Bill Kessling, Brian George, Sandi Dennis, Ron Allen, Talene Shuck, Caroline Sitar, Mike Bourdreau, and Sherry Shipley) worked hard. They contacted groups, businesses, and spent countless hours to make 2015's toy drive a successful project for our chapter, the community, and most importantly the kids at the hospital.
Our goal for 2014 was to collect and deliver 500 toys to the kids. Through the hard work and generosity of our chapter members and our sponsors, we exceeded that goal and collected and delivered over 1200 toys, plus over a thousand dollars in cash and gift cards!
Our goal for 2015 was to collect 2,500 toys! See video above to hear what was collected.
A Special Thanks to all our Sponsors!
