(STURGIS) – The Sturgis Toy Run is getting ready for it's 31st annual event this Saturday afternoon.

And after all these years, it's still about the children.

Toy Run President Tom Morse says the Toy Run started in December with some friends sitting around, trying to figure out how they could help some families they knew that were in need. They decided to ride their motorcycles and collect toys and it grew from there.

Over the lifetime of the Toy Run, Morse says they've seen riders not just from Michigan and Indiana, but people from all around the United States and even Canada have come to Sturgis to participate.

Morse says last year the Toy Run was able to help 1600 families in St. Joseph, Branch and Cass Counties in Michigan along with LaGrange and Elkhart Counties in Indiana.

Registration is going on until 10 PM today, then from 8 AM until 10 PM on Friday and then on Saturday morning at the Kelly Road campsite. The ride starts at 1 PM Saturday.

The cost to participate is just $20 and a new toy per person. Morse says the ride is not just for motorcyclists. Anyone is welcome to participate in the run, as long as they pay their entry fee and bring a toy. If you forgot a toy, K-Mart will be on site once again selling toys.

There will be free tent camping on site, but there will be a $40 charge for all RV's, campers and trailers.

Morse says you must be 21 years old to be on site and have a picture ID.
