‘Miles The Brave’ sells pig for over 50k

CENTRAL POINT, Ore. – A young northern California boy, dubbed ‘Miles The Brave’ as he battles brain cancer, is also fighting to make a difference.

On August 14th at the Junior Livestock Market Animal Show, Miles sold his pig Petunia for over $50,000. His parents say a number of companies pitched in to buy the hog including CLT Logging, All American Emergency Services, Big Timber Incident Management, and several Calfire contractors working on the McKinney Fire. CLT Logging ended up winning the auction at the incredible price.

His parents say miles will be donating $12,000 of the earnings to the new Olsrud Family Women’s and Children’s Hospital at Asante Rogue Regional Medical Center.

UPDATE 8/15: This post has been updated to reflect that CLT Logging won the auction.
