CRESTVIEW —The FamiliesFirst Network of Lakeview invites area motorcycle enthusiasts to participate Sunday in the 15th Annual Toys For Kids Motorcycle Run.

Motorcyclists will meet at the Crestview Wal-Mart parking lot, where they can go inside and purchase an unwrapped toy.

Shortly after registration, participants will leave for a scenic route of Crestview, ending at the Crestview Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 5450 on James Lee Boulevard.

VFW members will provide lunch to participants, who can win raffle prizes donated from local businesses.

FamiliesFirst works with the Department of Children and Families to assist with the foster care system.

Many of the donations assist foster parents who struggle to provide a Christmas for children in their care, Mary Culbertson, a family services counselor, said.

"This takes the burden off them; it allows them to worry about taking care of the other necessities," she said.
