A five-year-old with a rare brain condition will join family and friends to recreate a walk made after he was first diagnosed.
Harrison Smith, from Oswaldtwistle, was diagnosed at three weeks old with the condition Hydrocephalus which causes a build up of fluid on the brain that doesn't drain into his bloodstream.
The Moor End pupil had to undergo surgery at Pendlebury Children's Hospital and was fitted with a shunt to relieve the pressure on his skull.
His family organised a walk in 2009 to raise money for the Shine Charity which offered support and advice following his diagnosis.
They have also organised two auctions over the past five years raising more than £12,000 for the charity.
Harrison will now join his mum Dawn and dad Shaun, his 10 brothers and sisters and around 50 other people to recreate the 12.5 mile walk this weekend.
Shaun, 44, said they are hoping to raise around £4,000 and he will dress up as the charity's mascot Benny Bear.
He said: “He's going to be starting the walk with us.
“We don't know if he will be able to do it all but he is doing it with his brothers and sisters and there's about 60 of us in total.
“everybody is getting sponsored and his school are also having a non-uniform day.”
Shaun, a sales advisor at Elite Hardware in Accrington, said Harrison is starting to show early signs of dyspraxia and epilepsyis but is doing 'really well' with his condition.
He said: “If you look at him and didn't know you would see a fine, healthy five-year-old. He's doing really well at school.
“Since he was diagnosed he's had no revisions which is a massive bonus but we go and get him checked every six months.
“He's a cracking lad and a good-natured boy and just gets on with it.”
The walk from along the Leeds-Liverpool canal from Hapton Bridge to the Red Lion at Whitebirk will take place on Saturday, May 3 from 10.30am.
