THE STORY:

Ainsley's Angels is Proud to Present "Power To Push": Run Across America! 

MUST watch video, click here.

The Written Details:
Who: The Evans Family. Specially, Shamus and Shaun will run, while mother, Nichole, and younger brother, Simon (6) will provide support along the route.

What: A 3,186 mile journey across the United States

When: With a duration of 70 days, the trek will take place during the 2015 school summer vacation.

Where:  The Evans Family will make the journey from Seattle, WA to New York City.
 

Why: The mission of the cross country run will be to raise awareness and provide fund raising support for nonprofit organizations such as Ainsley’s Angels that promote involvement and active lifestyles for children with disabilities.


How this idea came to become reality: Shaun Evans is an ultra marathon runner from upstate NY. His 8 year old son Shamus was born with cerebral palsy. The disability limits Shamus’s use of his legs and as a result he uses a wheel chair as his primary means of mobility. As soon as Shamus was old enough to ride in a jogging stroller he joined Shaun on training runs, covering 20 miles at a time at the age of 18 months. In 2012, after thousands of miles Shamus out grew his jogging stroller. In 2013, with the help of Ainsley’s Angels, Shamus was able to obtain a new, larger running chariot that enabled him and Shaun to continue their passion together. They entered some local 5 and 10k’s, but Shamus wanted to push the limits and go a little further. In August, with Captain Shamus is charge, they competed in the Sweltering 6 hour run. As Shaun supplied the legs and 'power to push', Shamus 'pulled' Dad along. On the morning of the race, Shamus said to his dad “Let’s win! I really want to win a race!". Shaun repiled, "We will do our best." Together they covered 45 miles in the allotted time and came in 1st place. The next male finisher was 9 miles behind. With Shamus’ smile and spirit encouraging Shaun’s legs, they accomplished the mission, THEY WON AN ULTRAMARATHON!


What could be next? Shamus had an idea, and during the summer of 2015, that idea will become a reality!  Because they witnessed how the assistance from Ainsley's Angels to secure a larger jogger chair changed thier lives, We strive to raise enough money to donate (1) large jogger chair in every state!
