(KSL News) -- The Angel's Hands Foundation had some fun at Sugar House Park today, trying to bring awareness to Utah children living with rare and terminally ill diseases.

Mark Kristensen, Founder & President, Angels Hands Foundation: "When you have a sick child, you have to be ready, and you ahve to reach a point where you're willing to share that child. With Angel's Hands we're hopefully making it easier for families to step out."

The event, hosted by the Murray City Fire Department, featured fire fighting equipment from around the valley.

The ROTC showcased a climbing wall and classic cars were displayed, as well as the over 100 motorcycles that rolled in from their ride that started in Murray.

All the funds from this event help provide medical equipment and services that insurance doesn't cover, as well as funds research and supports the national MPS society.
