Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation

ROANOKE, VIRGINIA (WSLS) - Students at one local school were walkin and rockin for a good cause Friday.

In February, WSLS introduced you to 11-year-old Kennah Hebert -- a local girl with type I diabetes, who rockstar Bret Michaels is sending to a summer camp for kids with diabetes.

Wanting to show that they care too, Kennah's school, Goodview Elementary, held a walk Friday morning to raise money for the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation.

To thank the Poison frontman for helping their classmate, each grade sported a different colored bandana during the event.

"When we did our story about Bret Michaels we came up with the idea that we could all wear bandanas to support Bret Michaels and diabetes research," said Hebert.

The school says it doesn't have a final tally yet on how much money they raised, but that the kids did a great job.
