Susane Johnson takes a break in Grizzly Plaza after completing her run from Rogers Pass summit.

Runner makes it to Revelstoke on cross-country trip

Susan Johnson reached Revelstoke on Friday on her cross-Canada trip from east to west.

Most endurance athletes heading across Canada for a cause go from west to east. Susan Johnson was going the other way, so when she passed through Revelstoke on Friday, it meant she was almost done. She ran from Rogers Pass to town on Friday, encountering several angry drivers and one coyote along the way.

She is raising money and awareness to stop violence against children. She asked anyone interested to make a donation in her honour to the Revelstoke’s Women’s Shelter.

Find out more on her Facebook page, Journey Across Canada to Stop Violence Against Children, or on Twitter, @thechangewithin.
