Kids in the Terrace area had a chance to hang out with an MMA fighter who has a story to tell.
Chris Bukwas Anderson is an MMA fighter from Comox Valley. Anderson is currently 6-0 in his pro fighting career trying to reach the UFC.
Anderson visits these small communities in B.C to donate equipment and motivate kids, he says he’s usually the underdog in most of his fights, and kids can relate to him.
Anderson recognized there wasn’t a lot of first nation athletes when he was growing up, and he wants to be a good role model.
Anderson hopes to one day visit and donate equipment to small villages and communities all over the country and later the world.
