The Beltway Jeepers will be hosting a Northern Virginia Toys for Tots run. The run will be on Saturday, the 22nd of November from 7AM and last until whenever. We would like to invite all here to come along.
This will be a great opportunity to show some Jeeping goodwill and help the Marine Corps get toys to some deserving children this Christmas!
After the run, we have lunch reservations at a resturaunt that is steeped in Marine tradition, and the National Museum of the Marine Corps is just a few minutes away. Its pavement pounding, but lets exercise those Jeeps!
We will start the run in Sterling, V.A. and end at the Toys for Tots collection warehouse in Stafford, V.A. At the warehouse there will be some Marines to meet us and media coverage. We will stop three times along the way. At some of these locations we will pick up toys from drop boxes there and people can join the ride at the point easiest for them. The meeting times and travel will overlap somewhat to allow people to join the group. If attending, please indicate what location you will join the group at, and bring a new - unwrapped toy in original packaging. Suggested value between $10 and $25.
