Youth Running to Raise Money for Cancer Research

 
 

LETHBRIDGE: Some hope for community members whose lives have been touched by cancer.

15 year old Dyllan Duperron of Valleyview, left  Lethbridge Monday morning to start a long-distance running fundraiser for the Alberta Cancer Foundation.

Dyllan will run about eight hours a day with his mother Bonnie following in her car until March 23rd, at which point he'll take a break and come back to school. He will then start it up again April 10th, as he aims for his destination goal of Grande Prairie.

Dyllan's hoping to raise $20,000 for cancer research during his run, and you can help out by making donations through a trust account for Dyllan Duperron at any ATB Financial, or directly through the Alberta Cancer Foundation.

Bonnie explained that the cause is important because it seems that today you can't turn a corner without finding someone who's life has been affected by cancer in some way.

When our newsroom spoke to Dyllan Monday morning just outside of Coalhurst, he was pushing ahead into powerful winds, fighting to stay on his feet as the gusts from each passing semi would almost send him into the ditch.

He commented that while the road ahead would be difficult, it's nothing compared to what people battling cancer have to deal with.
