WATCH: A BC boy fundraises for his sick BFF

Here's a story to warm your heart: a boy sets up a traditional lemonade stand to fundraise for his best buddy.

Quinn Callander, a 7-year-old boy from Maple Ridge, BC is friends with fellow Beaver Scout Brayden Grozdanich. He suffers from cerebral palsy; the condition affects his movement and muscle tone, making everyday activities a challenge.

Brayden will get the opportunity to undergo surgery outside Canada to treat the symptoms. His parents were going to take out a loan, but Quinn stepped in with a big idea: a lemonade stand fundraiser.

Their initial goal of $20,000 has since been blown right out of the water, and the cause has received a lot of support and lots of international attention.

You can hear Quinn's mom Heather explain how it all happened at 2:30 p.m.
