Hadi Shrine preparing for holiday season early

Posted: Updated:

The Hadi Shriners get a jump start on the holiday season by holding their annual toy run in Evansville.

It cost $10 and a toy to join the 90-mile poker run.

All the money and the toys go to the Children's Hospitals in St. Louis and Cincinnati.

Toys will be wrapped and given to the children at the hospitals during the holidays.

"They tell us at the hospitals that if we keep their minds busy their bodies heal faster so that's what we're here about," said Danny Schuler.

Organizers say a total of 246 bikes and 386 riders took part in the race on Sunday.
