Some pro-athletes from Hawaii join efforts to raise money for volcano communities
Professional athletes from Hawaii are joining the effort to raise funds, to support those in need on Hawaii Island as well as those affected by other natural disasters by launching the "Be a Hero for Hawaii Challenge" Wednesday.
The friendly competition encourages the athletes' teammates, rivals and fans to donate to see which team sport can raise the most money for those in need.
Other athletes part of the cause: Tennessee Titans quarterback Marcus Mariota, Texas Rangers infielder Izaiah Kainer-Falehfah and St. Louis Cardinals second baseman Kolten Wong - who is from Hawaii Island.
"This was something that you know we can come together and use all of our platforms of being professional athletes: to go out and you know raise some money and you know this is something that us from Hawaii know, that giving back is always number one. We always want to take care of our family take care of our ohana," Wong said.
