CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) -

Walter "Superbubz" Herbert touched the community's heart with his valiant, two-year battle with pediatric cancer.

The 6-year-old died in October.

Now, an effort is underway to build a playground at the school he attended for all his classmates to enjoy in his honor.

So far, $5,844.54 has been raised toward a $15,000 goal, said one of the organizers, Paul Weibel. That includes a $1,000 donation from the Cincinnati Bengals.

"Superbubz loved going to school and wished his classmates could have a swing set and teeter-totter," reads the Build It For 'Bubz Facebook page.

"This page is dedicated to making his dream come true."

Organizers hope to begin the playground as soon as possible and especially by this spring.

"Please consider donating so we can help the students of today and tomorrow play and experience joy with the new equipment and keep Walter “Superbubz” Herbert’s memory alive." Weibel said.

Checks made out to "Superbubz playground" can be mailed to Fairfield Central Elementary School C/O Karrie Gallo at 5054 Dixie Highway, Fairfield OH 45014.

You also can donate and find information at the Build it for 'Bubz YouCaring page.
