This is Noah. He’s 8 years old and is a young up and coming Triathlete. He did the kindest and most awesome thing ever. He decided that he wanted his 6 year old disabled brother to experience a Triathlon with him and share in his glory. He didn’t want him to miss out on his Youth Triathlon final, so he took him on every leg of his race, swimming, running and cycling.
He pushed, pulled and cycled his brother with him through sweltering heat.
Lucas was born with lissencephaly, a rare brain malformation. Children with the disorder — which literally means “smooth brain” — are missing the normal folds and wrinkles in the cerebral cortex, according to the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke. Lissencephaly occurs in only one in 85,470 births and can result in seizures, difficulty swallowing and other serious health problems, according to The Cortical Foundation. What a brother! Well done Noah.
