BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) - Trevor Sims, a young cancer patient who partnered with the Baton Rouge Food Bank and went on a campaign called 'Trevor's Wish' to feed the hungry, became the inspiration of eight parishes.

On Friday night, October 11th, he was in for a big surprise.

On the eve of his 6th birthday, Sims appeared at Central High for their high school football pep rally before their game against Denham Springs High School.

"Hello, I'm Trevor," Sims said, introducing himself to the crowd.

Students at Central High have been busy selling shirts and shaking cans to raise money for the Baton Rouge Food Bank. They surpassed their original goal of $2,000.

The school had a big announcement for Sims as a birthday present. They announced that they raised more than $16,400 or 82,000 meals.
