JACKSON, Mich. (AP) -- Three-hundred-fifty-four miles and thousands of donated dollars later, the "Michigan Stilt Walker" has wrapped up his latest trek across the state.

Neil Sauter arrived in Jackson about 6 p.m. Sunday to finish his fundraising walk for United Cerebral Palsy of Michigan.

He tells The Associated Press he covered about 24 miles on the final day of the walk. He says he took in about $6,500 in cash, as well as online and other donations that raise the total to about $8,000.

The 30-year-old Deerfield resident has mild cerebral palsy. His "Walk for No Limits" began April 12 in Ann Arbor.

He says he's tired and his feet are sore, but that won't stop him from going to work next weekend on the festival circuit.
