Rowan Mayer delivers $112.12 to Maeve O’Byrne, President of the Nanaimo & District Hospital Foundation.
Young Rowan Mayer has already established himself as a humanitarian at the age of ten. Earlier this month he presented $112.12 to the Nanaimo & District Hospital Foundation for the Paediatric Unit at Nanaimo Regional General Hospital (NRGH). This is the second year in a row that Rowan has turned his birthday into a fundraising opportunity. Last month he invited twenty friends to a swimming party and each guest brought a donation rather than a gift. Maeve O’Byrne, Foundation President, was “grateful for such a selfless gift, from such a young man” adding, “the Foundation has really noticed an increase in charity-minded youth in our communities today, it is really wonderful”.
