Bikers ride across CT in holiday toy drive

More than 100 bikers from across Connecticut turned out in Bridgeport Sunday for a toy drive to benefit children in need this holiday season.



Mickey's 21st Annual Toy Run was held at Mickey's Community Restaurant on the West End of the city.



Participants donated $10 each or a new, unwrapped toy and then rode their motorcycles to Newtown and back.



Organizers say all of the money collected will go toward buying more gifts for kids who would otherwise not receive any.



The toys will go to the Sisters of Charity, a nonprofit organization on North Avenue that helps people in need.



Organizers say they will be accepting new, unwrapped toys at the restaurant through the second week of December.
