Aiden Carty accepted Raising Men Lawn Care Service's 50 Yard Challenge to offer free lawn care to senior citizens, the disabled and other people unable to mow their yards, WDAF reported.

"I just want to cut their yards, so they don't have to do it," Carty told WDAF.

Children don't just have to mow lawns. The 50 Yard Challenge includes other tasks like raking leaves and shoveling snow.

On completion, Raising Men Lawn Care gives the child a new lawnmower, blower and weed whacker.

Carty is one of five children in Missouri participating in the challenge, WDAF reported. He accepted the challenge at the beginning of August. He has mowed two lawns and has two more planned. He hopes his efforts spur others to help.

"(I want) to get kids that spend time indoors, playing on their Xbox or phones, to go outside and actually be interactive with nature, actually be outside," he told WDAF.

Carty plans to one day have his own lawn service.
