Pease brothers share athletic triumph, inspire others

Posted: Updated:
ATLANTA -

No special course. No special treatment. But, one incredibly special story of overcoming life's challenges through hard work, dedication and some brotherly love.

Brent and Kyle ran away with people hearts when they ‘ran' in this year's Peachtree Road Race. Brent pushed his wheelchair-bound brother, Kyle, who was born with cerebral palsy, the entire 6.2 miles of the popular annual race.

The next stop for these Atlanta natives: the Iron Man competition.

Appearing on Good Day Atlanta Friday morning, Kyle said, "I always wanted to be an athlete. I remember our mom and dad bringing me to the Little League games and I would have to be on the sidelines, and I thought one day that might be me. I had never known that it was going to be intramural sports. I absolutely love it and to do it with my brother is very special."

The brothers shared their story of triumph, living their dreams and helping to inspire others through their achievements and through the work done at The Kyle Pease Foundation.
