Arnold Schwarzenegger told hundreds of middle school students that even though he has "fought terrorists and even the devil" in his movies, he is most proud of the battle he's waging on behalf of inner-city children.
The actor was in Mann Middle School in East San Diego on Friday to announce a $50,000 donation by his foundation, Inner-City Games. The money will fund a series of after-school sports programs for the 2001-2002 school year.
"There is no reason why each one of you can't dream the big dream . . . to be mayor of San Diego or governor of California," Schwarzenegger told the students.
Schwarzenegger, whose film credits include "Total Recall" and "End of Days," served on the President's Council for Physical Fitness and Sports under former President George Bush.
