Runners were out in New Windsor Saturday morning to raise money for a 13-year-old baseball player who was diagnosed with an inoperable brain tumor.
His coach, Joe Voltaire, took it upon himself to lead a fundraising effort to help Jett Diaz and his family.
"A month ago, I got a call from Jett's dad and we kind of figured out what his diagnoses was, and I just decided I had to do something to help," he told News 12.
His father called Jett a “brave guy” who is not battling his fight alone.
An online fundraiser has accumulated more than $30,000.
