FORT MYERS, Fla.-The community has stepped up to save a toy drive at a Fort Myers gym.
Last week, thieves broke into Fort Myers Fitness and stole bikes and toys that were being donated to children in need. But in a few short days, the gym collect 68 new bikes and hundreds of dollars worth of toys.
Wednesday night was their annual bench press competition to kick off their donation.
"Feeling awesome, this is the best year we have ever had. The community really pulled together. We are going to be able to help out two schools this year instead of just one. It is an awesome turnout," said Bryan Raymond with Fort Myers Fitness.
The bikes and toys will be donated to children in need who attend Harns Marsh Middle School and G. Weaver Elementary School.
