Teens who mowed west Louisville yards for free honored in city ceremony

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) – They've given back to the community, and now they're getting a gift that will keep them going. 

Back in July, WDRB was the first to introduce you to four teens on Louisville's west side that started cutting lawns all across our area for free. 

Fast-forward a month, it's August and the kids kept working for no pay. Their positive attitudes put them in the spotlight, and on Wednesday evening they were front and center, honored by a who's who of Louisville.

The group of teens were joined by Mayor Greg Fischer and members of the Muhammad Ali Center. 

"EZ Portable Buildings" based out of Paducah donated a large garage, valued at $7,000, so that the team members had a spot to store all their lawn care equipment. 

"I didn't expect to be this big and all the media to be out here," said Travis Durham who helped for the group. 

With a new garage to keep their operation up and running, the team will continue to spruce up their neighborhood. They are not out to make headlines but to help make a long lasting impact.

The teens GoFundMe page is still raising money. They were asking for $6,000, and right now people have pledged more than $80,000. The group says they will use the money for tuition to college.
