On November 19, 2016, Marine Corps League Detachment #1190 hosted a motorcycle run to raise money for the Toys for Tots program. Approximately 70 riders participated in the 100-mile ride that began at Texas Roadhouse in Christiansburg and traveled south along Virginia Route 8 and then turned south onto US Highway 221 at Floyd. Making a few stops along the route, the riders then traveled north on Virginia Route 100 and ended at the Walmart in Dublin. The entrance fee was a new, unwrapped toy to support the Toys for Tots program, and riders received a commemmorative T-shirt for their participation. The weather was a bit windy, but pretty warm for November in southwest Virginia. At the end of the ride, participants were treated to a free lunch of hamburgers and hot dogs. We all had a great time and supported a very worthy cause in the New River Valley.
