Young Humanitarian Gets Rewarded

A young boy is recognized by his heroes Wednesday afternoon at the Fruita State Patrol office.

7-Year-Old Chase Toliveer has been collecting aluminum cans for the past two years to raise money for his grandma who has cancer.

So far he's made about $140 dollars. He wants to be a trooper when he grows up so state patrol invited him by for a behind the scenes tour.

They also presented the youngster with a plaque and Toliveer says he just hopes his grandma gets better and that one day he can help fight crime.
