BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) -

Her list of volunteer and charity work is a mile long, and she is only 10 years old. From food drives, to sock drives, to supporting cancer patients, this month's Amazing Kid is Chloe Foster.

If you look up the term 'a servant's heart' you might just find the face of Foster. It is hard not to appreciate the energy, passion, and emotion this young girl has to offer. It all starts with her family.

"It's a joy to see her want to change the world. She is truly a light in a dark world," said Chloe's father Kenny Foster.

There's the usual exceptionalism with Chloe. She is a straight-A student, leader at school, and loves to dance. She doesn't just do charity work with her family, she involves the whole school.

At a food drive at Chloe's school, the kids filled five huge bins with food.

Then Chloe held a sock drive at her school.

"Everybody just started bringing in lots of socks. Two big boxes at the end of the hallways. And it was incredible," said Chloe.

But was something not listed on the nomination form that made us appreciate her even more.

Chloe has a very special bond with her former teacher Mrs. Kami.

"At the time we didn't know what to do. What do you do for somebody that's fighting cancer? You can't do anything was the first thought. And I was like, 'we can support her, how do we support her?" said Kenny.

"Although it was sad times it made us happy to be able to help her and it was fun to be able to help her with Susan G. Komen and when she was my teacher and she didn't have breast cancer it was a joy to have her as my teacher," said Chloe.

"Um it means a whole lot because breast cancer has hit so close to home," said Chloe's former teacher Kami Broussard-Jackson. "My mom has been diagnosed twice. I was diagnosed five years ago. And so to have that type of support come from a child... and to say I'm praying for you, I'm here to support you. She looks forward to the race every single year and they are there cheering us on for the survivor parade which is March 7th this year. And we are preparing for that. It just means a whole lot. I feel very blessed to have had Chloe in my class."

If you hear that one kid cheering the loudest at the Race for the Cure next month, it might just be February's Amazing Kid Chloe Foster.

The Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure is Saturday, March 7. For more information on the race, click here
