Mirror staff reports:

Puyallup resident Mitchell Condon, 8, heard about NFL football players raising money for breast cancer awareness, and he decided to do it, too.

Mitchell and his mother, Marci, visited the Women’s Health and Breast Center at St. Francis Hospital in Federal Way on Wednesday to donate the money that he raised mostly from family and friends throughout October.

It took a few minutes to pull all the dollars out of his pocket, and to top it off, he added 20 cents from the other pocket for a total donation of $127.20.

The donation will go toward a new digital blood pressure monitor with Mitchell's name on the device. The clinic presented Mitchell with a certificate of appreciation.
