Seven years ago, Campbell River’s Mark Anthony Roberts was diagnosed with non-hodgkins lymphoma cancer when he was just four-and-a-half years old and received treatments for three- and-a-half gruelling years.

Now healthy, Roberts runs to support the people who helped save his life.

Since 2006, he has taken part in the Child Run in Vancouver which raises money for the oncology department at B.C. Children’s Hospital to help children suffering from cancer.

This year, a piece of the Child Run will be coming to Campbell River.

“He would like to represent our town which has been there for all the children who have been or still are doing treatments. We always receive great support from everyone in Campbell River,” says Dawn Duncan, Robert’s mother.

She placing piggy banks with the Child Run logo in various businesses, asking for either a loonie or a twoonie to be to go towards the Children’s Hospital.  The run takes place on June 5.

Call Duncan at 250-286-0390.
