SOUTH ST. LOUIS COUNTY (KMOV.com) -

Students at one South County school dressed up in costumes for more than just Halloween.

Students St. Justin Martyr School were encouraged to make a donation to an organization called Tiny Super Heroes. They were also encouraged to dress up as their role models.

“We decided to have a dress down day for our everyday super heroes,” said 7th grader Sidney Evenson, who organized the event. “My mom told me that firefighters save people a lot so that’s why I’m dressed as a firefighter.”

Tiny Super Heroes makes capes for children suffering from a disability or illness. The group’s mission is to help kids overcome obstacles and it has sent more than 6,000 capes to children around the world.
