Riders in San Luis Obispo County hopped on their bikes and rode several miles to support local kids.

The 39th annual SLO County Toy Run kicked off Sunday at 10:30 a.m. and dozens of bikers joined in to give back to their community.

Participants started in downtown Avila Beach and took a scenic ride through back country roads before ending at the Portuguese Hall in Arroyo Grande.

Each person paid a $5 admission fee and was encouraged to bring a new, unwrapped toy for kids ages 1 through 16 or pay $15 if they couldn't bring a toy.

The fundraiser featured a barbecue lunch, raffle prizes, a 50/50 drawing, and live music.

The grand prize winner scored a single axle enclosed trailer.

The event, hosted by the SLO County Toy Run , invites different clubs and organizations to come together and donate toys and money to support children in the community.

The non-profit looks to gift toys to underprivileged children this holiday season.
