24th annual Christmas in July

Centurions Motorcycle Club event moves to online donation event

24th annual Christmas in July

What would the last Sunday in July be without our annual Christmas in July Toy Run, hosted by the Centurions Motorcycle Club? We are pivoting to a new event style to ensure the safety of our patients and families!

This year marks the 24th year, and due to the coronavirus pandemic, the traditional event cannot safely take place.

New this year, the Centurions Motorcycle Club is collecting donations online through a personal fundraising page. Support the event and be sure to select Philadelphia!

To date, the Centurions Motorcycle Club, Philadelphia Chapter Annual Christmas in July Toy Run event has collectively raised more than $475,000 in cash donations. They have a plaque on the hospital’s permanent donor wall.

“Even though this is not the typical Christmas in July event, we thank the many efforts to bring much-needed donations for the care of our patients.” said Terry Diamond, director of development.
