Standout San Diego cross country team draws energy from paralyzed teammate who competes in a wheelchair pushed by an adult triathlete.
Patrick Henry High student Cormac Evans is featured in this video as he is pushed in a special wheelchair around the 3.11-mile Morley Field course by distance runner/triathlete Sean McQuaid during an Eastern League cross country meet. Evans was born with a condition called Hemimegalencephaly, where basically the left half of his brain was extremely enlarged, causing numerous problems, not the least of which was serious seizures. Surgery was performed removing half his brain and his entire left side is paralyzed and actions associated with that half of the brain like talking cease to exist.
