7th grader wins $15,000 in fair livestock competition, donates it to St. Jude

A 7th grader in northern Ohio is receiving praise for an act of charity.

According to a Facebook post by Western Reserve Schools, Diesel Pippert donated all of his livestock premiums at the Huron County Fair to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.

That amount ended up being $15,000.

“His donation of $15,000 will help to find cures for young children and save lives,” the school district said Saturday.

St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital works to advance cures and ways to prevent pediatric diseases, including cancer.
