FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WFFT)- The Bishop Luers senior who spent his football season raising money for Alex's Lemonade Stand tallied the final numbers Sunday.

HoneyCuts Salon has been supporting Peyton Howe since last Fall to help kick childhood cancer. The HoneyCuts stylists presented a check to Howe for $1,000.

Howe's initial goal was $2,500, but he quickly surpassed that and raised nearly $8,500 by kicking at each game.

Howe told WFFT he'd like to continue fundraising for Alex's Lemonade Stand in college.

"I'd also like to keep the tradition going at Luers and also maybe see if I can get other high schools to join in, too," he said.

Howe says the next big thing on his list is acing his last semester of high school.
