Presented by The Virtue Foundation and East End Boys Club.
Casey and the Octopus is inspired by the real-life journey of Casey Wright and his family. Now 19 years old, Casey has undergone 12 different surgeries, beaten cancer, survived a stroke and an aneurysm - and maintained an infectious sense of humour and optimism throughout. Casey is a champion for children battling illness. He puts his energy into raising awareness and funds for families like his. Through a series of monologues and animations, Casey and the Octopus uses multimedia storytelling techniques to share the story of how Casey and his loved ones fought for his health, taking the good with the bad; how he used his experiences to educate and give back to his community; and how he overcame his greatest challenges by holding on to hope and love.
