When an aunt’s death touched the life of eleven-year-old James Coyle, he decided he wanted to do something to stop the pain and suffering of losing friends and family to cancer. He joined the Relay Life Walk for Cancer in 2004 and shaved his head challenging others to donate and join him in this symbolic act. For the next three years, James continued with his mission to raise money and awareness by shaving his hair and encouraging others to join his team, “4 A Cause”. His fundraising efforts have been very successful and his remarkable spirit has inspired his town. James Coyle has helped change the lives of those living with cancer and has done so with infectious eagerness and willingness to be part of a team. He is a true champion.
