Preview: Jeremy's Journey, A Special Report

Posted: Updated:

A Rossie father is boating across the country and to Alaska to honor his son.

So far Jeremy Donovan has traveled close to 3,000 miles to fulfill a promise.

Last year his son Keegan Donovan killed himself. He was just 16 years old. 

Jeremy is taking the trip to raise awareness and take his son's ashes to Alaska.

"Two days after he had passed away, I was sleeping in his bed and he came to me in a dream," Jeremy said. "He was on the couch and he leaned over and gave me a fist bump and said 'take my ashes to Alaska.'"

On Thursday's 7 News This Evening at 6 p.m., reporter Patrick Malowski shows us Jeremy's journey and what he's encountered along the way.

The photo of Jeremy with his boat is from his gofundme page.
