BOSTON (WHDH) — An emotional finish for hundreds of runners in the One Run for Boston.

The cross-country relay race ended in Copley Square late Sunday night.

Runners raised nearly $80,000 for the One Fund, helping victims of the marathon bombings.

The woman who carried the torch for this portion of the race, said she ran for her father, who was injured that April day.

"It's really indescribable. It was a life changing event for so many people and my father's life will never be the same therefore neither will any of ours and he's worked so hard to get to today and I’ve really wanted to do this for him all along so I’m glad we were able to do it,” said Nicole Reis.

The race started in Los Angeles on June 7th.
