When it comes to participating in the annual Hi-Line Toy Run having a caring heart is more important than having a motorcycle.

“It’s a motorcycle run that is open to everybody. We don’t discriminate,” said organizer Michael Dytrych of Eustis, who grew up in Cozad and has worked at Nebraska Plastics in Cozad for 20 years.

Participants in the Hi-Line Toy Run motorcycle ride have collected toys, supplies and money to benefit the Parent-Child Center in Lexington for the last four years. Last year, the Hi-Line Toy Run collected $780 along with many toys and hygiene products.

Last year, they’ve filled a whole trailer with donations, and this year is expected to be very successful, too.

Participiants collect toys, supplies and money for the Parent-Child Center in Lexington. Donations are presented to Parent-Child Center representatives at the end of the daylong ride.

The ride started and ended in Eustis, and it included many stops, among which was Johnson Lake, Lexington, Callaway and Cozad.

The event took place on Saturday. It is always set to October, so it coincides with Domestic Violence Awareness Month.
