Virginia Beach, Va. - Tomorrow, you have the opportunity to take action for the Lance Corporal Cody Childers Memorial Fund.

This effort was started by Cody's mom, Wendy Childers, after her son, a Marine, was killed in Afghanistan back in 2010.

Since then, she has made it her mission to send care packages to our military members overseas.

This weekend's fundraiser helps support this effort.

One of the key organizers is Jeff Stewart who we surprised with a people taking action award.

One of his nicknames is the “One Armed Bandit,” but that does not slow him down one bit. Wendy says Stewart is a big help.
