The Sleigh Riders Motorcycle Toy Run is a 501c3 charity that Charley Barnes started in 2006. The Sleigh Riders hold two main events each year with all proceeds and toys given to Santa Cops of both Weld and Larimer County.
The main event is our Christmas Toy Run that takes place on the last Sunday before Christmas every year. The Summer Series Poker/Toy Run is a very unique event and that is held towards the end of June. (For information on each event please click on that page from the tool bar above.) In addition to our two main events, we also have a very strong presence in other activities throughout the year with one of the funnest being the Greeley Lights the Night parade in November where we are always a crowd favorite with over 100 motorcycles riding in our entry.
The Christmas Toy Run is by far one of, if not the best, toy run in Colorado. The run is a parade ride of about 12 miles from Greeley to Windsor and has it's own police escort with all intersections controlled and closed by the Greeley Police Department and the Sleigh Rider road guards for one continuous, non-stop ride. Typically, we see about 350 motorcycles show up. (For exact details on this years run, please click on the Christmas Toy Run link on the tool bar above.)
The Sleigh Riders Motorcycle Toy Run is the largest single contributor to the Santa Cops program and we can't thank all of our riders enough for making that possible.
For more information, or if you have questions, please contact us here from the website and don't forget to like us on Facebook where we update our event information regularly. Also, if you would like a Sleigh Riders patch, please send $5 and a stamped return envelope to P.O. Box 336504, Greeley CO 80633.

You MUST have decorative lights on your motorcycle to be in our entry. It's also nice to jazz up your sled with Christmas wrapped boxes, candy canes or whatever you want to do. If you want to bring toys, feel free to do so and we will collect them at the end. The more toys we collect for the kids...the better. Toys on this run are NOT a requirement but you are more than welcome to bring some to donate/decorate with.
We will again stage at the Unitarian Universalist Church on the NE corner of 10th Avenue and 15th Street. The parade route will go North on 9th Avenue from 15th Street to 7th Street ending at Lincoln Park in downtown Greeley.
