Nelson’s Paige Purcell (left), who had a life-saving operation to remove a brain tumour in 2012, raised $2,065 during a recent trip to Vancouver for the Child Run. Joining her was a friend from Kelowna who also has a brain tumour. Paige, 5½, will be going for her yearly MRI in October. She wants to raise more money. You can help by donating your sorted empties at the Nelson bottle depot and asking the cashier to place the funds in Paige’s account. To date she has helped raise $14,000 for BC Children’s Hospital, Nelson Friends of the Family and Make-A-Wish.
