Father Mike Tobin 2019 Boston Marathon

SHELBYVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A Shelbyville priest completed the Boston Marathon on Monday and raised thousands of dollars for charity.

WDRB first spoke with Father Mike Tobin a few weeks ago, as he was training for the famous race.

He finished the 26.2-mile course in about four hours and 21 minutes.

Tobin ran for the David Ortiz Children's Fund, a charity that provides heart surgeries for sick children. He raised more than $40,000 for the cause.

He's a priest at The Church of the Annunciation in Shelbyville. While on the course, Father Mike met the little girl he was running for, baby Joey.
