Haslett family spreads love in honor of son

"Listen and Believe" charitable fund.

Micah Magnusson, a former Haslett High football star, and his family are leaving an impact on their beloved community. The Magnusson family has turned a family tragedy, losing Micah at a young age, into a charitable fund, called "Listen and Believe" to help others in similar situations.

The charity has been fundraising and supporting families for a year and a half, with the Magnusson family and their friends believing it will change lives in Haslett and the surrounding communities for those in need of medical help.

WKAR "Current Sports" beat reporter Shanin Thomas sat down with the Magnusson family to discuss their journey.
