Golden legislature raises awareness for childhood cancer
Gold lights welcome cross-country bikers hoping to end childhood cancer
New Brunswick's Legislative Assembly was lit up gold to mark National Childhood Cancer Awareness Month on Wednesday night.
Collins lost his 13-year-old son Sean to cancer in 2007. In 2013, he cycled across Canada with the Sears National Cancer Ride.
Collins, a Moncton MLA and the legislature's Speaker, organized Wednesday's event in time to meet this year's team as they make their way to Halifax.
Ken Cross has done the cross-country ride five times.
"In essence why we ride is to end one sentence; your child has cancer. And one day hopefully that sentence is never said again," he said.
