Man Dressed as Crawls London Marathon Route for Charity

A British man dressed in a gorilla costume finished the London Marathon  on Saturday after nearly a week of crawling along the route. Tom  Harrison--known as "Mr. Gorilla"--completed the marathon in an effort to  raise money for the charity The Gorilla Organization, which protects endangered gorillas in their native habitat. 

UPI  reports that Harrison crawled through the streets of London for 10 to  12 hours a day on his hands and knees. He had hoped to raise $2000 for  the charity, but after his effort gained attention, Harrison ended up  raising more than $33,000. "The fact that it went global has been  completely unexpected, but brilliant," Harrison said.
