The trio of runners, who set out from St. John's Newfoundland on May 1, arrived in Kenora Tuesday afternoon. The three runners are averaging a combined total of around 71 kilometeres a day with Dymond and Kuyena travelling the bulk of the distance. The team is encouraging other runners to join them and so far about 250 runners have temporarily joined the group along their journey.
"We wanted to make donating accessible to all Canadians regardless of their age or social class," Dymond said, adding it's his dream to see children helping other children.
Dymond said the team hopes to collect a toonie donation from every Canadian who hears about the run and already $30,000 has been raised for World Vision programs targeted at reducing child poverty in urban and rural communities across Canada.

"This may sound clich, but we're hoping to touch hearts and minds," said Kuyena. "People can write cheques and make donations but a paradigm shift in how people view childhood poverty is where real change will happen."

"They're the most vulnerable population in the country. We saw kids without clean drinking water and a lack of proper nutrition that was effecting their overall health," Dymond said.
"When we first started we thought we'd run 31 kilometres a day, but that number has crept up since Newfoundland," laughed Dymond.
