Kevin Youklis and Dustin Pedroia visit Furnace Brook Middle School in Marshfield, Mass

Students and staff at Furnace Brook Middle School topped the school division with a gift of $16,825.

As a reward, Youkilis visited both to answer questions about life on and off the field, to sign autographs and take pictures.

"Let's go Red Sox. Let's go!" was chanted in the gymnasium at the middle school. Students were overly enthusiastic, because Youkilis didn't come solo. He brought a surprise guest—rookie and second baseman Dustin Pedroia. Youkilis couldn't think of a better way to introduce him to the Jimmy Fund.
