Posted at 4:28 PM, Jan 31, 2016

A Las Vegas native ran for a world record this weekend around the Strip.

Helene Neville crossed the finish line Saturday with supporters cheering her on. She ran the perimeter of the Strip non-stop for 135 miles while carrying an American flag.

Neville started at 7 a.m. Friday and ran for 35 hours.

Neville has survived three bouts of brain cancer and just had brain surgery last month.
