 SOUTH PORTLAND, ME - A retired Marine sergeant has wrapped up a year-long mission to raise awareness for veterans.

Brendan O'Toole of Virginia completed a 3600 mile run Monday, Nov. 11. He started a year ago in California and traveled through 21 states. On Veterans Day he finally stopped in Maine. O'Toole raised money for three charities that provide social, mental and physical support for vets and their families.

They will split $400,000 that he helped raise.
