'A huge undertaking': Kiwi Jon Nabbs on his ongoing mission to run across Canada

In 2023, Kiwi runner Jon Nabbs set off on a mission to run across Canada to raise money for child cancer research. 

He was inspired by the loss of his parents to the disease- just 16 months apart.

Jon has confirmed he's expected to reach Vancouver - and the finish line - this week.

He says he's got 150 kilometres to go, after battling his way through Canada's rocky mountains last week.

"Thankfully, Mother Nature granted me a clear two-day window, and I was able to get up over the pass, down into what they call the lower mainland."
