Posted: Updated:

(WMC-TV) - One pre-teenager spent his summer mowing lawns for the victims of the Moore, Oklahoma tornado.

Dyllon Orthman, 11, chose to raise money for the tornado victims.

"A lot of people are saying my mom is making me, but I actually decided to mow for Moore, Oklahoma," stated Orthman.

Orthman did not let the temperature prevent him from helping others.

"I worked in 104 degrees. That didn't stop me. I'm still going on my feet. My dad always says, 'You're going to work it to the bone, Dyllon," declared Orthman.

Orthman mowed nearly 90 lawns in two months and has raised about $16,000.
