Students raise big money to honor classmate

PORTLAND, Maine (NEWS CENTER) -- A group of students at Memorial Middle School in South Portland has a lot to be proud of.

They raised almost five thousand dollars for Barbara Bush Children's Hospital. The fundraiser was inspired by 13 year-old Tristan Flaherty, who died almost month ago from a rare illness he had suffered from for most of his life.

The students delivered the big check to Barbara Bush Children's hospital themselves. They also got a tour of the hospital With Tristan's family.
