DEER PARK -

Kickstands were up today as bikers took part in a special ride to brighten the holidays for Long Island children in need.

More than 300 motorcyclists took part in the fifth annual ride for the Marine Corps Toys for Tots.

Santa himself led the ride from the Miller's Ale House in Deer Park to the Miller's Ale House location in Levittown.

More than 4,500 toys were collected and funds were raised for the event by people, businesses and Long Island motorcyclists.

The toys will be donated to less fortunate children on Long Island to help make their holiday special.

More information on how and where to donate to Toys for Tots can be found at their website.
