BUTTE - There are two days left to vote for the 2012 CNN Hero for 2012.
Butte's own Leo McCarthy is nominated.
Leo founded Mariah's Challenge after his 14-year-old daughter, Mariah, was killed by a drunk driver in 2007. He was recognized by CNN as one of its CNN Heroes earlier this year.
He awards scholarships to students who graduate without getting a minor in possession citation.
CNN has dubbed McCarthy the community crusader. He received $50,000 for Mariah's Challenge when he was announced one of the top 10 CNN Heroes in September.
On Sunday, McCarthy has a chance to win $250,000 if he is voted the CNN Hero of the Year.
