Christmas comes early for pediatric hospital patients

Posted: Updated:

Christmas may still be a few months away, but that didn't stop one group from getting in the holiday spirit with a toy drive.

Sleigh bells were substituted with the sound of Harleys in part of the 21st annual Liberty Hog Toy Run.

Liberty Hog gathers more than 500 bikers for the ride to bring thousands of toys to pediatric patients at the Bristol-Myers Squibb Children's Hospital at Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital.

Even Santa and Mrs. Claus made an appearance.

For the children, it's an opportunity to forget some of the challenges they face.

The hospital also receives monetary donations from the event, providing kids with much-needed love throughout the year.
