Local golfer raising money to help fight pediatric cancer

LEXINGTON, Ky. (WKYT) - With every drive, chip and putt 8-year-old Abigail Caine is doing her part to find a cure for pediatric cancer.

"Because there are kids out there who are very sick, and I just want to help them," said Abigail Caine.

The Versailles native is one of 50 Junior Golfers world wide participating in the Win Green Campaign raising money to fight pediatric cancer.

"You know Junior golf is exploding," said Abigail's dad Bill Caine. "When you think about 50 kids, and these kids are amazing with some of their talents. Then you think about the outreach that they'll have and the people that they can reach with their golf abilities because if they're anything like my daughter, everybody knows by daughter plays golf."

The goal of the campaign is to raise $100,000 to benefit St. Jude Children's Hospital and the Sadie Keller Foundation.

"You want your child to help whenever they can," said Bill Caine. "Those kind of life lessons early on I think are important for any human being but we feel tremendously blessed that Abigail is willing to take something like this on and being passionate about it."

Over the next few months, Abigail will be raising awareness through golf and encouraging others to donate to the cause. She's following the mantra of the Win Green Campaign.

"I will utilize my skills to benefit those who are in need," said Abigail Caine.
