An Ohio boy is being hailed as a hero after he donated $15,000 in livestock premiums to help sick children.
According to WJW-TV, Western Reserve Schools seventh-grader Diesel Pippert is giving the premiums, which he earned Saturday in a Huron County Fair livestock sale, to St. Jude Children's Hospital.
"A young man lives amongst us who should be an example to us all," the school district said in a Facebook post Saturday, adding that the donation "will help to find cures for young children and save lives."
"Diesel, you are a hero!" the post concluded.
