PLAINFIELD, Ind. - Plainfield High School students honored a teen that would have just started his senior year.
Haris Suleman, 17, died in a plane crash while trying to become the youngest and quickest pilot to fly around the world in July.
Suleman’s friends wore special T-shirts in his honor to the first home soccer game of the season. Suleman would have played in the game.
The front of the shirts read "Around the World in 30 days," and on the back was Suleman’s soccer number and #LiveLikeHaris.
"It was just nice to see the whole community come together and honor and celebrate him and you could just tell that Haris had a huge impact on a lot of people's lives and he was just such a great guy with a big heart and the whole community is really going to miss him," junior Sarah Reynolds said.
Money raised from the T-shirt sales will go to the Citizens Foundation, the group Suleman was raising money for in his around-the-world attempt.
