SEATTLE, May 24 (UPI) -- A Washington state 16-year-old ran 113 miles in 24 hours for the American Cancer Society's Relay For Life in Seattle.
Blaine Lints, 16, of Bellevue said he did not quite make his 130-mile goal, but the distance and time is expected to earn him a record for his age group, KING-TV, Seattle, reported Monday.
The teenager, who went into hypothermic shock at one point during his run, said he was inspired by his grandmother's leukemia diagnosis.
Lints said he stayed home from school Monday to recuperate.
American Cancer Society officials said the relay raised nearly $300,000.
