Competing together brings joy and laughter to disabled boy's face, says father

Luo Shujian, a native of Jinhua in East China's Zhejiang province, is unlike other marathon runners. He doesn't run for fame or glory; he runs for his son who has cerebral palsy.

Luo, 39, who works as an express delivery man, is preparing for a marathon in Beijing in September. It will be the eighth 42-km run that the father has taken part in with his 7-year-old son, whose nickname is Xiao Bo.
