    SACO (WGME) -- One week ago, Kevin Fitzpatrick climbed up on to the roof of Patriot Subaru, waiting for the money.

    One week and an hour or so later, Kevin is off his roof as supporters came through with enough money for STRIVE to meet his $40,000 fundraising goal.

    There was some rain, a bit of lightning and some very warm days and nights, but Kevin's annual one-man fundraiser brought in $40,061.43.

    The rooftop effort raised money for STRIVE, a group that helps teens and young adults with developmental disabilities.

    Kevin started the fundraiser six years ago, increasing his fundraising goal, along with his time spent on a roof, to benefit the local nonprofit group.
