Local viral video now being used to raise money for others

- It's a talent very few have seen before, but now they call it the "flip heard round the world" because the video has more than 3 million views on YouTube.

"I mean this last week I sat in every place I go and it was surreal. I can't process it," said Mike Senatore.

Now the unique talent is being used to raise money for an organization close to Senatore's heart.

"Cancer. It's one of the worst things there are. Everyone knows cancer, it's a household enemy name," said Senatore.

For the first time since his new found fame, the soon to be high school graduate, opened his heart in front of cancer survivors and his fellow peers.

5 years ago, his dad lost his battle with cancer.

"It impacts you just like my father's impacted me. It made me wanna make a difference. I think it opens peoples eyes to the real big picture," said Senatore.

Which is why Mike wants everyone to attempt the famous flip and donate to the American Cancer Society.

To raise money for the organization Mike says you don't even have to use his favorite brand of water or nail the flip. All you have to do is use the #flipforacure.

"I am hopeful for the most outrageous flips like where in the world you can flip it in like Europe, wherever. I would love to see the most wild things," said Senatore.

Because one flip could raise enough money so everyone impacted by cancer can call themselves a "survivor'.
