A father pushed his son in a special wheelchair across the country, using the trip to raise awareness for cerebral palsy.

Shaun Evans and his 9-year-old son, Shamus, began their trip in Seattle and finished it, two months and more than 3,000 miles later, in New York. Shamus was born with cerebral palsy and rode in a special wheelchair for the trip.

Evans said the two of them traveled between 55 and 60 miles a day for 60 days. Along the way, they delivered similar wheelchairs to other children in 15 states. The Evans family said the journey was exhausting, but called it rewarding.

"Not only all the time that we got to spend together bonding as a family, but also obviously the things that the mission was all about, promoting inclusion and gifting mobility," said Evans.
