A youth football and cheer team raised money Sunday to help in the fight against pediatric cancer.
The Mount Pleasant Wildcats Youth Football and Cheer Organization hosted the fourth annual Spirit Day, which raises money for the Ty Louis Campbell Foundation for childhood cancer research.
One of the cheerleaders, 9-year-old Joelle Agosto, says she not only wanted to cheer for the football players on the field but also wanted to help raise money for families with sick children.
This year, Agosto made friendship bracelets that were given out at the event.
Cindy Campbell, who founded the Ty Louis Campbell Foundation after her son died from cancer, says it's people like Agosto that truly make a difference in the fight against pediatric cancer.
She also says pediatric cancer trails far behind research for other types of cancer.
Organizers say it's great to see children volunteer year after year because helping others in need is an important lesson.
