A Cape Breton woman has finished 14 half-marathons in 14 consecutive days to raise money for HIV/AIDS support programs in Africa.
Deby Johnston, 54, of Ingonish Ferry spent two weeks running the Cabot Trail as part of the Stephen Lewis Foundation initiative, A Dare to Remember.
Johnston began her journey Dec. 1 — World AIDS Day — and ran each day for approximately 21.1 kilometres after working her regular job with Nova Scotia Power.
“It went fabulous,” an enthusiastic Johnston said. “I finished in the 14 days — I didn’t miss one day. I ran through three snowstorms and I felt great.”
Johnston has raised upwards of $11,000 for the Stephen Lewis Foundation and is continuing to accept donations through the foundation’s website.
