Ashley Gilbank is rollerblading across Canada to raise money for youth mental health.

On June 4, Ashley Gilbank of St.John's Newfoundland strapped on her roller blades and pointed them west.

She's been blading ever since.

Her mission is to help raise awareness and funds for youth mental health.

She will complete the 10,000 km journey when she reaches Mile 0 in Vancouver.

On Oct. 4 she rolled into Kelowna. The next morning she dropped by the CBC studio for a chat with Daybreak host, Chris Walker.
