BLUFFTON, S.C. – A group of kids in South Carolina spent Labor Day selling lemonade to help fight childhood cancer.

This was a week after their friend Michael Mugrage lost his battle with cancer.

The kids set up the lemonade stand to honor their friend and raised more than $10,000 towards childhood cancer.

“We just want to make kids happy. We just want them to be able to live a good life, yeah,” said Michael’s friend Darren.

The group of a dozen kids spent all Labor Day selling lemonade and golden bows to help the cause.

Most bows have been sold out but there are some left in memory of kids’ friend Michael and others battling the disease.
