WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) -

A young boy is giving rather than receiving on his birthday this year.

Walker Forsythe said instead of getting gifts on his eighth birthday this year, he wants to raise money for women fighting breast cancer.

His birthday party, on April 30, will be a fundraiser for Pink Heals Cape Fear Chapter. Pink Heals helps local women who are battling cancer.

Walker's goal is to raise $2,000, according to his grandmother, Brenda Nettell.

According to an event page on Facebook, the party will include vendors, raffles, games, bouncy houses, a dunk tank, face paintings, piñatas and birthday cupcakes.

The event is happening at Northside Church at 2501 N. College Road in Wilmington on Saturday, April 30, from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m.
