Man teaches kids to run...from his wheelchair

Martel George of Charlotte, North Carolina, is making an impact on the lives of boys participating in the Let Me Run program. Martel coaches teamwork, self-esteem and, of course, running to the kids. But he does so from a wheelchair.

Because of cerebral palsy, 26-year-old Martel has been in a wheelchair all his life. But that hasn’t stopped him from getting involved and helping his team be the best they can be.

George is the first person in a wheelchair to ever serve as a head coach for Let Me Run. But, he’s been a great role model, teaching the kids to stay active and motivate them to push through any limits they think they might have.
