Hundreds of bikers came together from across central Texas to make sure Christmas will be extra special for children in need.

The 28th annual Austin Motorcyclists Toy Run took place Sunday despite some rainy weather, benefiting the Helping Hand Home in Austin, which helps neglected or abandoned babies.

"We could not be more grateful for these rough-and-tough men and women, who have brought so much joy to our children this holiday season. Thank you to all who weathered the storm to make the 28th annual Toy Run a huge success!" the organization wrote on Facebook. 

Meantime, another similar event - the TriCounty Toy Run - was also held nearby to benefit families who may not be able to afford gifts this year.

The nearly 1,000 motorcyclists escorted a semi truck filled with 36 bicycles and 81 boxes of toys, which will be given out to kids Coryell, Bell, and Lampasas counties.
