On the final programme of 2023 Nine to Noon highlighted the marathon effort of Kiwi Jon Nabbs as he ran across Canada.

He set off from St John's in Newfoundland on the country's east coast and has headed west ever since - running through six Canadian provinces on his quest to reach Victoria in British Columbia. With his trusty pram 'Shania' and wearing his trademark Superman suit, he's endured the incredibly tough Canadian winter, all to raise money and awareness of child cancer charities.

He finished his run yesterday - so how did he celebrate?
