This Holiday Season you can make a difference in the life of a local North County child by donating a toy during the 2023 Holiday Toy Drive. 

We're teaming up local YMCA's to support Casa de Amistad and their mission to share the holiday spirit to a child in North County. 

Donating is simple! You're provided the chance to sponsor one or more kids by signing up to fill their gift needs through a link on the Run North County website. Run Leaders will also be provided with a list of names & gifts for you to choose from.

You can drop your wrapped or unwrapped toys at your favorite weekly run, or one of our drop off locations at Double Peak Brewery in San Marcos, the Ecke YMCA in Encinitas, and at Fleet Feet San Diego in Carmel Valley. We'll also be collecting toys at the All Runner's Holiday Parties and Events.

Casa de Amistad is a North County non-profit community outreach program—helping underserved youth and families become stronger through tutoring, mentoring, and enrichment activities. We help students lay solid foundations on which they can build a brighter future for themselves.


Directions to Sponsor a Child:

  1. Click on the link.

  2. Find your Group Run - Each Group Run is listed on the spreadsheet.

  3. Select a Child from your Group Run's list and place Your Name next to your Group Run's name. (this way we know that child is covered) Each Child's sizes and requests are listed alongside their name.

  4. If your group run's selections are full. Just choose a child from a different run and place Your Name AND your Group Run's Initials. 

  5. Purchase your toys and bring them to your group run or a drop off location. Please LABEL the gift with the child is intended for. 

  6. That's it! Thank you and Enjoy your Holidays!!!

We have the opportunity to make holiday wishes come true for 300 kids in North County this holiday season, and we know that the North County Running community will come through!
