Soccer ballers kick for a good cause

Derek Garde, Nick Streibick, Isaac Beal, and Jake Essig are kicking a soccer ball along a 250-mile route ending in Toledo. The group, calling themselves Dribble 4 Toledo, has so far raised more than $9,000 of their $10,000 goal for LifeLine Toledo, a service providing free medical supplies, food and other items to low-income people in need. The group has been averaging around 24 miles a day.
