    While the kids were at lunch their new toys guarded the fort & the empty classroom

    I think there were quite a few happy kids at San Tor School that day & all because of some motorcyclists caring for them.

    More fun & games

    The Chiang Mai Toy Ride also donated footballs, Frisbees, basketballs, & badminton sets to the school for the kids to play with. And they certainly did on the day!

    It was a great day out & very rewarding being able to help others not so fortunate.

    Thank you to all those riders who made it on the day.
    And a BIG THANKYOU you to the 2009 Chiang Mai Toy Ride Sponsors.

    The next Chiang Mai Toy Ride charity event should be a school donation to a mixed hill tribe school out past Chiang Dao, near the Burma border.
    All riders are welcome to come along & join in. The more the merrier.

    Please watch the Chiang Mai Toy Ride website

  2. David again a great event and big hearts from the riders !!! Unluckily for some of us this event was during the week so we couldn't participate but would love to. Hopefully the next charity run to Chang Dao will be on a Sat or Sun, would love to join & contribute !! Cheers, Franz
     
  3. Franz-

    We would love to have more riders at these Playgounds Plus+events. As you know we try to make the main Chiang May ToyRide event as convenient as possible.

    For obvious reasons, the school events must be scheduled on school days when the children, teachers and staff are all in attendance. We work closely with the school in establishing the time and dates.

    I know we will see you at Chiang Mai ToyRide 2010 on 21 February, if not sooner :D
     
  4. For all of you guys and gals who attended the event; here is a "Thank You" from the kids. :D :D
