8 Year Old Carries Disabled Brother Throughout Entire Triathlon
July 28, 2014
Lucas and Noah Aldrich are brothers, tied at the hip. They do everything together. They even participate in marathons together. However, Lucas was born with Lissencephaly, a rare brain disorder that affects his development and his growth. The disorder prohibits him from walking or being able to speak.
Luckily, this 6 year old has an amazing older brother. Recently, the two have completed a youth triathalon together, where Noah has successfully pushed and pulled Lucas through a 200-meter swim, three mile bike ride, and a one-mile run.
On the Today Show, Noah told reporters "I like everything about him. He is perfect."
Lucas has been progressing in becoming more vocal and expressing himself. The two brothers are an inspiration to all.
