Tyler Funk

North Huntingdon, Pennsylvania

Tyler Funk, 17, of North Huntingdon, Pa., a senior at Norwin High School, has helped raise $35,000 for cancer research through the community group he started, “The Purple Fighters.” Inspired by his great-grandmother, who died from the disease, Tyler also volunteers with his local Relay for Life every year, and gathered donations and made 150 "Hope Bags" for cancer patients.
