A young Comox Valley boy has been recognized for his hard work.

Dylan Johannes has been named a Hammer’s Hero for his charitable work with Kid-Sport Comox Valley.

He says he’s been able to get involved in events like the Mayor’s Cup and Snow to Surf through the organization.

As part of his award, Johannes won a trip to Vancouver to see a Canucks game.

The 12-year-old was nominated to be a Hammer’s Hero by one of his teachers, Allan Perich, who also serves as the President of KidSport.
