SPRINGVILLE, Ind. (WTHI) - A Wabash Valley 5th grader is making a difference in her community!

Molly Osmon is from Springville, Indiana. 

She's also the driving force behind the Be Brave and Beat Cancer Rally. The event was held Saturday.

It's in honor of her brother, Riley, who is fighting cancer.

Molly raised a little more than $19,000. The money will help fund immunotherapy initiatives at Riley Hospital For Children in Indianapolis.
