Engines were revving Sunday to raise money to help needy kids this holiday season.

Burkburnett and Henrietta VFD's joined forces with local motorcycle clubs to hit the road and raise money for operation Santa Claus.

That organization gives children in need toys off their wish lists.

Riders say getting involved in the community helps give the clubs as sense of pride.

“We like to give back to the community especially like the children we like to help the children anytime we have any events going on around town we always do what we can to participate, we try to get all the bikers in the area involved,” says rider Michael Macdonald.

The fun run is an annual event and organizers say you don't have to be a motorcyclist to participate, cars are always welcome, too.
