Monster trucks are rolling into Tulsa for the Monster Jam this weekend, and one of the first stops for some drivers was at St. Francis' Children's Hospital.

Damon Bradshaw, who drives Monster Energy, and J.P. Ruggerio, who drives El Diablo, helped patients create Monster Jam Thriller Necklaces. The necklaces include the Monster Jam Beads of Courage which represent significant treatment milestones.

"It's to hopefully make them smile. That's our whole goal for being here, just to see them smile," said Damon Bradshaw, Monster Energy driver.

The beads have supported 30,000 children in more than 100 hospitals. Monster Jam beads will be given to patients in nine states this year.
