A 9-year-old Calabogie resident has raised over $1,000 for the Canadian Cancer Society.
Dawson Pennock raised the money as part of a building project at Queen Elizabeth Public School.
The idea of the project is to let each child pursue a concept on their own and Dawson chose to raise money.
Community Fundraising Specialist for the Canadian Cancer Society Jessica Khouri is impressed with the drive Dawson has.


Dawson went door to door to raise awareness of cancer as well as collecting money.
He presented the money to the Refrew County Community Office of the Canadian Cancer Society on Tuesday.
