This time last year, Logan McNab could walk independently. Today, the 10-year-old boy cannot manage even one step without assistance, and his only chance to fully regain the ability to walk has a hefty price tag attached.
Born with a brain injury and Cerebral Palsy, Logan suffers from severe tightness and muscle deterioration in his limbs – in particular, his legs – and without drastic and expensive intervention, the boy’s condition will continue to worsen.
So, when Brampton resident Will Bennett learned that his friend Dan McNab needs $100,000 to pay for a surgery that will turn things around for Logan, he decided to do something.
Bennett, the guitarist/vocalist for Brampton-based band The Red Boy, has organized a fundraising event – Logan’s Hope – with the hopes of raising $5,000. It will be a showcase of local musical talent – with seven bands on the bill – and include raffles and prizes. The all-ages event takes place Jan. 24 at Spot One with doors opening at 7 p.m. Tickets are $15, and are available through band members or at Brampton’s Long & McQuade.
