Jon Nabbs: Raising Funds & Spirits for Childhood Cancer
[Toronto, August 22] – In an awe-inspiring demonstration of human determination and athletic prowess, Jon Nabbs, a fearless adventurer from New Zealand, has embarked on a monumental journey to run across the expansive landscapes of Canada, alone and without a support crew.
This incredible feat of endurance and resilience promises to capture the hearts and attention of people worldwide as Jon pushes his limits to conquer over 8,000 kilometres of diverse terrain.
Setting off on May 03, 2023, Jon Nabbs began his extraordinary expedition at St. Johns, Newfoundland, and with every step, he is not only chasing his own dreams but also raising awareness for a noble cause – Childhood Cancer Canada. His journey is a testament to the indomitable spirit of the human will, motivating individuals from all walks of life to embrace challenges and create positive change in their communities.
Navigating through a spectrum of climates, elevations, and landscapes, Jon's run across Canada is more than just a personal adventure; it's a metaphor for the trials and triumphs that define the human experience. “I've always been fascinated by Canada and wanted to visit to see it for myself: the Rocky Mountains, the North Atlantic, The Great Lakes, The Bay of Fundy, the great North American prairies, the Yukon and its Northern Lights, the Northwest Passage, the list goes on”.
Jon is running in support of Childhood Cancer Canada so “patients can be better equipped with treatment options, have access to support services, travel to and from the hospital, and continue to feel they have some control as they fight a fight they shouldn't have to fight”.
“Both my parents lost their lives to cancer in 2020/21. I know the desperate feeling a family experiences when they receive a diagnosis, and the importance of continuing to find hope, inspiration, joy, and trying to live through that period on your own terms”.
As Jon continues his awe-inspiring run, supporters and well-wishers can follow his progress through his official website www.jonnabbs.com and on Instagram @jon.nabbs
Whether it's running through rain or shine, Jon's dedication to his mission serves as a beacon of inspiration for all those who dream big and dare to step out of their comfort zones.
