This weekend employees from CompTel Communications attended the 17th Annual Motor Cops for Kids Toy Run. We have participated in this event many times over the last several years and have been thrilled with the turnout. Hundreds of riders come from all parts of the DFW metroplex to participate in the event, providing the Shiners with much needed support for children in need. Since it started in 2002, this toy run has raised $376,000 and provided over 14,500 toys for local charities and needy children in nearby communities.
The riders are escorted on a 37 mile trek through Garland, Sachse, Wylie, Rockwall and Rowlett. What makes this event even more special is the turnout from the community. Residents along the route of the parade turn out along the streets to show their support as well. We will continue to provide our support for many more years in this event and others that happen thorough out the year.
