ABINGDON, VA (WJHL) - A 3-year-old Abingdon boy lost his leg after he was run over by a lawnmower on Mother's Day.

Brayden Keith Altmann was staying with family members.  A friend said the boy ran out of the home to take a glass of water to a relative on a riding mower.

Just three days later, Brayden is showing amazing signs of recovery at Niswonger Children's Hospital.

Now, family friends are organizing multiple fundraisers to help the Moore family pay for medical care. 

  • During Trail Days on Friday May 16th and Saturday May 17th a raffle will be held to benefit Brayden. The drawing will take place on Saturday at 8:15 pm. Raffle tickets are $5.00 each and the basket will contain over $100 worth of prizes.

  • On June 7th, there will be a fundraiser for Brayden at The Coomes Recreational Center in Abingdon, VA starting at 11 am. If you donate blood at the blood mobile you will receive a free swimming pass for the day, a free t-shirt, along with snacks and drinks. There will be three photographers, a bake sale, face painting and a silent auction.

  • Starting May 15th through May 31st, Alecia Couch Photography will be offering $20.00 photo shoots with 10 edited photos on a CD with Print Release. Proceeds will go directly to Brayden's family.
