Transcript for Brothers work together to help neighbors in need
Finally tonight, America strong. The brothers working together to help their neighbors in need and the online challenge inspiring others. That's Sam and hunter. In three months, they have mowed more than 50 lawns in their Detroit neighborhood for free. We thought this would be a great thing to get involved in and they were onboard to do it. Reporter: The 50 yard challenge that began with this man, Rodney Smith. Back in 2015, I came across this elderly man mowing his land and looked like he was struggling. That night, I decided I would start mowing free lawns for the elderly, disabled, single parents and veterans. Reporter: Rodney motivated by a simple message. Make a difference, one lawn at a time. His cause going viral. The goal, to challenge youth to cut 50 lawns for anyone in need at no cost. The only requirement? Send a photo holding a sign saying "I accept." When you reach 50, Rodney personally makes the trip to deliver you a free lawn mower, weed eater and blower. So far, he's traveled to about 25 states. Motivating more than 1,000 young people. So, this week, when Sam and hunter finished their challenge, Rodney made the ten-hour drive from Alabama. It was just amazing to see him. It's heartwarming just to know that he does these kinds of things, but for us to do it, it's even better. Not just about mowing the lawn, it's about actually connecting and being with people, especially through the pandemic right now and I think we've all grown from it. We're all hoping that kindness continues to spread.
