Grand Forks Boy Honored

Posted: Updated:

GRAND FORKS, N.D. (AP) - A 10-year-old Grand Forks boy is being honored for his donations to charity.
    
The Grand Forks Herald reports that fourth-grader Jak Urlacher has donated $1,000 to charity over five years.
    
Jak and his donations were recognized Friday during an assembly at his school.
    
Jak donates annually to Pennies for Patients, a fundraiser that collects spare change from students for The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society.
    
Jak says he donated $50 the first year. The amount has increased each year since. He says he donated the money so he could help people with cancer.
    
Jak's mother, Angela Harrison-Urlacher, says her son often debated whether to buy something because he worried he wouldn't have enough for the charity.
