Ah here, our feelings...

Eight-year-old Noah undertook a triathlon for kids, organised by the YMCA in his hometown near Boise, Idaho earlier this month, which is an impressive enough feat on is own. However, that's not why Noah has been making headlines, rather it's because he swam, cycled and ran the whole thing with his brother, who has a rare disability.

Lucas suffers from lissencephaly, a condition which means that he can't walk, talk, or eat on his own, but for Noah, his brother is just like every other kid out there: "I like to watch cartoons, he likes to watch Mickey Mouse...I like everything about him, he’s perfect”.

The bond between the two is clearly very strong, as their father told KTVB.com, who covered the amazing story: "You see Lucas light up so much when Noah enters the room. It just brings a smile to your face when you see the love between the boys."

That bond will surely be even stronger after the race, where Noah swam with a harness attached to him and Lucas behind him in a raft, cycled with Lucas in tow, and then finished off the triathlon with a run, bringing his brother with him across the finish line. 

For Noah, it was all about making his brother happy, and bringing a smile to his face, but with all the coverage they've also raised plenty of awareness for the charity that their parents have started for kids in similar situations, Lucas House

Noah got his hands on a huge bar of chocolate afterwards as a reward fore the exhausting task, but he's also made a memory that no one in the family will ever forget.
