High River residents are no stranger to 10 year old Tate Barton and the Ten's of thousands of dollars he's raised for cancer care here in town.

He may be rewarded with a Calgary Stampede Western Legacy award Tuesday, November 20, in the Youth Category.

Tate's Dad, Jamie Barton, says it's nice to see his son's good work being noticed in the wider world.

"It's a huge deal. It's just grown into something far beyond our imagination. And I'm certainly proud of all the little ideas that he has and all the initiatives he wants to put together."

Jamie, says despite all Tate's good work, he's still just 10 years old.

"I reminded somebody of that the other day. They ran into him and were very thankful of all the things that he's done. But I said, to just remember he's still a 10 year old kid and a little stinker at times."

Barton is up against a couple of other kids who are equally deserving of recognition.

The awards run from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. Tuesday in the Palomino Room at the BMO Centre at Stampede Park.
