They might not be able to carry as much as Santa's sleigh but a group of area bikers hope to make this Christmas a merry one for kids here in Green Country.

Saturday was the 26th annual "ABATE of Tulsa" Motorcycle Toy Run. Hundreds of Santa's helpers rode through town to donate toys to the Marines' "Toys for Tots" program.

Randy Pulliam: "Its a good time, makes you feel real good, like I say, starts the Christmas season off. Like I say, its better to give than receive, so it makes you feel real good about that."

The annual "ABATE" event is the largest toy run in the Midwest.
