VIGO COUNTY, Ind. (WTHI) - One local man is probably resting his feet right now after hours of running to raise money for a Wabash Valley trail.

Lost Creek Township runner Chris Steward ran for 24 hours starting Friday night. He did this to raise money for the area trail and park.

Steward says he's not looking for praise or publicity for what he did, he just wants to help take care of a place he loves.

Several people donated a dollar per mile he ran. He and his wife ran for a combined 101 miles.

Steward’s goal was to raise $1,000 for the trail. The final numbers are not in yet but Steward did pass his goal.
