HATFIELD, PA 09/17/14 — The legendary Delaware Valley A.B.A.T.E. TOY RUN “For The Kids” holds the record as the largest one day assembly of motorcyclists in America! If you’re a motorcyclist and have an interest in buying and selling such vehicles, see options here.

The TOY RUN “For The Kids” is a phenomenal charity success, delivering mountains of new unwrapped toys to hospitalized kids battling for their lives over three decades. The event is supported by the U.S. Marines Toys for Tots program which helps distribute the enormous volume of toys collected.

For this year’s TOY RUN “For The Kids” motorcyclists from around the region are encouraged to again show their support and take a shot at winning $50,000 just by registering for the event FREE online at

For the last 34 years an army of motorcyclists have assembled in Philadelphia for a Sunday ride in early November. Not just a last hurrah before putting the bikes away for the long cold winter, the driving force behind the TOY RUN “For The Kids” event has always been a mission to help the kids!

To say that the Delaware Valley A.B.A.T.E. TOY RUN “For The Kids” has been successful would be an understatement. At its height over 90,000 motorcycles showed up for the TOY RUN “For The Kids” — each participant carrying a new unwrapped toy — creating a thundering parade from the Delaware River waterfront through the city to bring joy and smiles to kids in need.

This year, due to traffic control limitations required by Philadelphia Police and City officials, the TOY RUN “For The Kids” will begin at Columbus Boulevard and Spring Garden Street and take an abbreviated parade route to the ELECTRIC FACTORY at 421 N 7th St, Philadelphia, PA.

To pump up the excitement level up for TOY RUN “For The Kids” local insurance and real estate entrepreneur Scott Hartzell of HARTZELL INSURANCE ASSOCIATES of Hatfield PA has created a $50,000 Grand Prize Contest for the event.

Though in the past TOY RUN “For The Kids” has been a spontaneous event with no formal sign-up or registration process, the HARTZELL Group has set up a FREE online registration page offering a $50,000 Grand Prize for the person who guesses the total number of motorcyclists who register online for the 2014 event.

The Grand Prize drawing will be held at the ELECTRIC FACTORY at 421 N 7th St, Philadelphia, PA at the Special Toy Run “For The Kids” FREE Concert with Allman Brothers tribute band Live At The Fillmore.

Contest Details

Toy Run participants will register online providing all requested information. A dialog box will request a guess of how many individual names will be registered online on this site by Saturday October 31st 12 Noon.

The guesses will be stored and tabulated by computer which will generate the results, providing an electronic record for verification.

In the event that no one selects the exact total number of online registrants, the computer program will give us the registrant with the closest numerical guess to the actual number.

That registrant will be notified and given an opportunity at the ELECTRIC FACTORY Event on Sunday November 1st to choose from one of 100 envelopes, one of which contains a $50,000 Prize!
