Riley patient collects toys for fellow patients

INDIANAPOLIS -- Kids at Riley Hospital got quite the surprise Tuesday morning when 2,000 toys arrived.

They came from a kid who knows the hospital very well.

B.J. Yoho was born with Spina Bifida.

He has had 17 surgeries and his right leg had to be amputated.

But for the past three years. He has been gathering up toys and handing them out to the other kids being treated at Riley.

"Right now, 2,006 toys, not counting all these here, over here -- not counting all these around the tree," said Yoho. "I'm gonna count these all later."

Last year he collected over 600 toys. So this year he set his goal for 1,000, which he has already exceed.

Next year, Yoho said he will set his goal for 4,000 toys.
