Ainsley's Angels of Oklahoma is an organization promoting inclusion.

The organization gives people like Sean Lewis the chance to participate in a one hundred mile marathon, even though he has cerebral palsy.

Lewis and his mom were up at 4:00 a.m. preparing for the event, but his mom tells us this isn't his first marathon.

Sean Lewis is a thirty-six year old man with cerebral palsy.

He had his first hundred mile marathon in Kansas two years ago, it took him twenty-seven hours and it was below twenty degrees outside.

Kyle Miller, Sean's mom, tells us "He's always encouraging other people, he's very appreciative of all the people that always come together to support him. He realizes without them, this wouldn't be possible."

His mom says he has teams of friends running with him to make sure he's okay, he always has at least two people with him at all times.

Due to the amount of time it takes to remove Sean from his chair, he doesn't take extended breaks.
