33rd Annual Hog toy drive breaks record
Today was the 33rd annual hog toy run, where bikers collected toys and delivered them to the Salvation Army.
The beautiful weather may have helped set a record for the toy drive this year.
Numbers aren't final yet but organizers say they believe as many as a thousand bikers were out riding today, sporting large teddy bears and toy trucks.
Some riders told us they've been doing this for over ten years.
Officials from the Salvation Army say they couldn't be happier.
Captain Terrie Wilson of the Salvation Army said, "There aren't words to describe when you see something like this take place, and you see so many people from the community who ride out, and it wouldn't even matter what the weather was like, they just come to give and want kids in the community to have a better Christmas."
Santa led the pack down Patterson road to grand mesa middle school, where they filled up two large trucks with toys for kids in need.
