In May, 10-year-old Zachary Murri was diagnosed with a highly aggressive brain tumour.
The tumour which sits at the base of the brain, called a diffuse intrinsic pontine giloma (DIPG), is inoperable in Canada.
On Monday (August 28), Broadmoor Lake Park in Sherwood Park filled with people who came to support Murri in a walk put on by the CBI Health Group. Donations went to raise money for potential treatment in the US.
"Obviously finances are a bit tight, with the parents trying to be there for their son, as well as there is a trial in the states that they're hoping to participate in to at least alleviate the symptoms or eradicate the cancer," said Angie Andrews, clinic administrator with the CBI Health group.
So far, $8,000 has been raised for Murri.
"We had about 400 people come out and participate, everyone was either wearing red in support or dressed as superheroes," Andrews added.
Donations for Zachary can be made through his GoFundMe page or can be dropped off at CBI Health Group in Sherwood Park.
