AURORA, Colo. (CBS4) – A Colorado teenager has been kicking field goals for a cause for months now, and it’s finally paying off.

Noah Karwacki is the kicker for Vista PEAK Preparatory School in Aurora. CBS4 featured an interview with him last month as he raised money for childhood cancer research through the Kick-It Champion program.

“To do what you’re doing, anything that I can do regardless of what I did on the field. I just want you to learn that don’t let one kick determine who you are and life is bigger than that,” McManus said.

The check helped Karwacki reach his fundraising goal of $5,000.
