A 70-year-old Army veteran is in our state right now finishing a big challenge. 

Jim Shiew started running in back November, starting all the way from Buena Vista, Colorado.

Saturday, August 23rd, his route took him through Bristol, Virginia and will eventually take him to Virginia Beach where he'll end it. 

Shiew is doing all of this for a Florida non-profit organization that supports military forces and their families.

He's been running no less than 12 miles a day, and says if he keeps his pace, he should make it to Virginia Beach by September 24th.
