Fundraiser Operation Ironman Markus
Markus Yule is a local Comox Valley boy, just 10 years old when he was diagnosed with brain cancer in 2013. Markus' parents, Mark and Yvonne have had to put everything on hold to be by their son's side during this ordeal. Family and friends have since put on many fundraisers to help the Yule family financially as they fight through this life changing event and do all they can to be together. We heard the story and volunteered to help put on a fundraiser and bring the community together for this brave and amazing family. This event was a great community effort and it was amazing to witness! It was a pleasure to have the Comox Valley Echo and GOAT FM meet with us and feature the Yule family's story. A lot of great vendors also came together to show their support for this amazing event and with the donations from businesses, people and kids, we were happy to raise several thousand dollars to help fund Operation Ironman Markus.
It was an inspiring event we will never forget for a brave little boy who we are happy to say is now cancer free! A special thank you to Roots Salon and to the 20 women who came out to donate their hair to Angel Hair for Kids and support the fundraiser for Markus Yule and his family!
