Motorcycle riders from around the region participated in a toy drop on Sunday, November 2, as part of the Annual Toy Run that delivered toys and other gifts to brighten the holidays for patients at The Unterberg Children's Hospital at Monmouth Medical Center.

Blue Knights, New Jersey Chapter XV accompanied by Santa and his elves, delivered hundreds of gifts to the hospital for distribution to pediatric patients during the holiday season. This year, as in prior years, musician Glen Burtnik, formerly of Styx, was on hand to perform as part of the festivities.

In addition, each rider's $10 donation benefited The Unterberg Children's Hospital at Monmouth Medical Center, which offers the highest level of pediatric services for newborns to adolescents, including cutting-edge treatment, specialized expertise and an unsurpassed dedication to medical excellence in 32 pediatric subspecialty areas.
