While many run for leisure or exercise, one New York man is running for a much different reason. Black Hills FOX reporter Heather Janssen has more on his Run Across America. The inspiration for a run across the nation, that's how Shaun Evans describes his son Shamus, who is a 9–year–old with cerebral palsy. Shaun Evans says, "We recognized early on that he has some mobility limitations, but like any dad, I wanted to share my passion with my son, I would take him on training runs with me. ". Shamus outgrew his jogging stroller in 2013. That's where... "When Shamus got those new wheels, he wanted to start racing. Up until then we had only done training runs, but now he wanted to race.
