Nir and Sean arrived in Cornwall around 8 pm last night. The family of Jessie Paschek, along with Councillor Elaine MacDonald with a gift on behalf of the City, were on hand to greet them.
Who are Nir Meltzer and Sean Squires? Two determined individuals who have decided to cycle across Canada as a way of helping to raise awareness about paediatric brain tumours and funds for research. Brain tumours are the leading cause of cancer related death in children under the age of 20.
Jessie Paschek’s five year old son Kohen is a brain cancer survivor who was treated at Sick Kids.
Cornwall is one of the stops on the road. Nir and Sean are leaving today to continue their cross Canada journey.
To date they’ve already raised over $50,000.
