πŸ… One Highlight

Team Key is excited to share Jon Nabbs’ monumental journey, echoing the courageous spirit of Terry Fox, to conquer running across Canada for a cause close to his heart. With his relentless strides from St. John’s to Vancouver, over 300 days, he’s run daily marathons, fundraising for childhood cancer, exceeding his initial $60,000 goal.

Nabbs’ mission, fueled by the loving memory of his parents, reminds us of the impact of individual determination. His story is a testament to the belief that one person’s resolve can indeed make a huge difference.
