A local hero has become a published author.
Jamie Summerlin celebrated the release of his new book "Freedom Run" at the Barnes and Noble in Morgantown Saturday afternoon.
The book chronicles Summerlin's 3,000 mile run across the country to benefit the Wounded Warrior Project.
Summerlin said he wants to inspire others to make a difference too.
"This hopefully becomes something that will inspire others to think outside the box, to really dream big, and understand that you can do anything you set your mind to. Hopefully it inspires people to look at how they can make a difference in their own communities," said Summerlin.
