One Austin couple's charitable request

Posted: Updated:

Instead of asking for gifts on their wedding day, an Austin couple asked their guests to donate to charities that support research of two diseases that hit close to home. Freddie and Mellenie Dixon requested that friends and family make donations to charities that support prostate cancer and sickle cell research.

On Saturday, Austin residents can participate in the ‘Dash for Dads' charity event to raise awareness about prostate cancer, and money to support research. For more information, visit

FOX 7's Ann Wyatt Little brings us the couple's noble story.
