7 Year-Old Raises Over $50,000 For His Best Friend's Surgery With Lemonade Stand

July 14, 2014

Quinn Callander and Brayden Grozdanich, both seven years old, are inseparable. The best friends do everything together.

But Brayden has cerebral palsy and needs surgery to help him walk unassisted.

Quinn wanted to raise money for his best friend's surgery so they built a lemonade stand. The friends captured the hearts and minds of the local community and the boys quickly enjoyed widespread support.

Then Quinn, with the help of his mother Heather Roney, set up an online fundraising page where he posted this heartfelt video plea.

As of July 14, the page has raised over $56,000 of their $20,000 goal. The surgery is not available in Canada so the money will also cover expenses for the trip to the United States.
