JACKSON, Mich. -

Hundreds of miles and thousands of dollars later, the "Michigan Stilt Walker" is wrapping up his latest trek across the state.

Neil Sauter is raising money for the United Cerebral Palsy of Michigan nonprofit by walking from one end of Michigan to the other all while 9 feet off the ground.

The 30-year-old Deerfield resident has mild cerebral palsy.

His "Walk for No Limits" kicked off April 12 in Ann Arbor. Sauter also has stilt-walked in Bay City, Grand Haven, Elk Rapids and Marquette, among other locales.

His journey is scheduled to end Sunday in Jackson, not far from his southern Michigan home. Sauter expects to have walked about 360 miles in all.
