A local youth football team held a fundraiser Thursday for the death of a fallen teammate and his family.
Eleven-year-old Juan Aires played for the Balboa Raiders. He was practicing Friday when he fainted on the field. He passed away on Sunday morning of non-football related symptoms.
Juan was known as "gummy bear" by his teammates and for having a big heart and a no-quit attitude.
