Be Kind: New Jersey students raise money for young boy battling rare brain cancer

BUTLER, New Jersey (WABC) -- A small idea turned into a huge help for a New Jersey family.

When the students and staff at Butler School District found out that a two-year-old boy had been diagnosed with a rare brain cancer, they stepped up big time.

They formed 'Team Theo' and worked before and after school holding different events to raise $18,000.

They recently presented Theo's father a check, and even dedicated a seat in their new auditorium for Theo.
