A Cowichan Valley family is looking to raise money for a wheelchair and adapted van for their son, who has a degenerative muscle disorder.

The family got a big boost recently with almost six thousand dollars raised at an event in Cowichan Bay.

Leslie Tindall says they are close to having a wheelchair for her son, Paul Henry, but need about 60 grand for the van.
