Runners in a monthlong coast-to-coast relay of more than 3,300 miles to raise money for a charity aiding Boston Marathon bombing victims have crossed the finish line.
    
One Run for Boston began March 16 in Santa Monica, Calif., and ended Sunday evening in Boston.
    
More than 2,000 runners were in the uninterrupted relay through 14 states. Each ran at least one seven- to 20-mile segment.
    
The relay raised more than $425,000 for the One Fund, which supports people who were directly affected by the bombings last year.
    
An organizer says runners raced through deserts and survived tornadoes and were upbeat as they neared the finish line.
    
On the relay, runners also visited the 9/11 memorial in New York City and a memorial for victims of the 1995 Oklahoma City bombing.
