A Davenport student awaiting a heart transplant has gotten the support of his classmates, who walked to help raise money for him and his family.

Wednesday, May 14, 2014 was the 10th Annual Run, Walk, Crawl, Stumble which started in the lobby of North High School in Davenport.

A spokesperson from the Davenport Community School District said each year of the walk the proceeds go to a different charity, and this year the funds raised went to the family of sophomore student Tylor LeMar, who is awaiting a heart transplant.

Participants said they enjoy the opportunity to come together and help someone.

“It makes us all work together to do something and today I feel like not a lot of people do that  so it always feels good to help somebody out,” said Elena Perez, a senior at Davenport North.

The fundraiser brought in roughly $1200 to help Tylor’s family cover medical bills.
