Kidney donor activist to run, bike, swim 500km

You think Ironman is a challenge?   

Check out the Ultraman this weekend in the Penticton-Princeton area.

Over three days, participants will swim 10km, bike 420km and finishing it off with an 84km run -- that's two marathons, back to back.

Penticton's Terry Craig will be in the race, and he'll be doing it all with one kidney. He donated his other one to his wife five years ago.

Terry spoke to Daybreak guest host Valerie McTavish on the eve of the big race.
