The Cosgrove Middle School principal slept on the roof Thursday night to make good on a promise he made to students after they raised more than $1,000 for Alex's Lemonade Stand. It’s a foundation that raises money for childhood cancer research.

We spoke with Principal Ned Dale about his experience. “Last night was a little rainy, but again what children go through with cancer is nothing compared to what I went through last night.”

The principal was able to pick which day he slept on the roof. He said he picked last night because it’s close to the end of the school year.
