Wie Donates $25K to Paralyzed Teen

HONOLULU -- Hawaii pro golfer Michelle Wie has donated $25,000 to a paralyzed Illinois teen athlete.
Wie made the donation after she found out football player Travis Hearn doesn't have insurance.
Wie has also donated relief funds to Gulf Coast hurricane victims when she turned pro last year. She also provides computers and other supplies to needy school children on Oahu's Leeward Coast.
Hearn got hurt in a high school game, making him a quadriplegic.
