Nashville, TENN. – For the seventh year, the Davidson County Sheriff’s Office and U.S. Marine Corps are partnering for a motorcycle run to benefit the Toys for Tots program.  Registration is scheduled to begin Saturday, rain or shine, 9:30 a.m., LP Field, Lot N.  The parade route will start at 11 a.m.  


“All it takes is $10 and a new, unwrapped toy per person to participate in this event.  Something so simple can make such a difference in a child’s life,” Davidson County Sheriff Daron Hall said.  “Much of what we do at the sheriff’s office is perceived as negative – from incarceration to serving civil warrants.  This is a great opportunity for our employees to do something positive and to give back to the children of Middle Tennessee.  It is important for us to support our community and this is just one way throughout the year we do that.”


Over the past six years, DCSO’s partnership with the program has brought in 10,500 toys and just over $37,000.  According to the Toys for Tots website, since its inception in 1947, Marines have distributed nearly 500 million toys to over 200 million children.  


Lunch and entertainment will be provided upon conclusion of the ride.  For more information, visit the DCSO website at www.sheriff.nashville.gov.
