Local yoga studio raises money for girl hit by car near John Deere Middle School

MOLINE - On Saturday, January 27th, a local yoga studio helped a little girl hit by a car near John Deere Middle School in Moline.

Shine Yoga and Bodyworks in Moline hosted its "Shine for Lola" Fundraiser.

Lola is the 11-year-old girl who was crossing 12th street and was hit by a car on Friday, January 19th.

More than 20 people took part in a yoga class and bake sale that donated all the proceeds to Lola's family.

The owner and teacher of the class says she has never met Lola, but hopes this will help her.

"I was just happy to do it as a mom and as mom of a kid the walks those streets, or crosses that street, talk to him about crossing the street and he says it's crazy, I just wanted to do something to for her and her family and sending her healing vibes," said Daina Lewis.

The fundraiser raised more than $600.

Lola is now home from the hospital recovering with her family.
