Brampton Bands Unite to Support Young Boy’s Plight

Brampton Bands Unite to Support Young Boy’s Plight

By Ashley Goodfellow

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.
