Guest Bio: Kyle & Brent Pease
Pease-BrothersKyle Pease was diagnosed at an early age with Cerebral Palsy, which has resulted in a lack of sensation and decreased mobility in all four of his limbs. Though he transports himself in a wheelchair, Kyle finished college at Kennesaw State University, works as a liaison and an ambassador at a major grocery store chain and at Children's Healthcare of Atlanta, serves as a patient greeter at Piedmont Hospital, and with the help of his brother Brent, finished multiple Ironman and Triathlon races.

Brent Pease is an avid triathlete and ultra-endurance athlete, competing in several Ironman races. He has finished multiple races with his brother Kyle, pulling Kyle in a kayak during the swimming portion, riding a specially designed tandem bike, and pushing his wheelchair in the marathon leg.
Sharing Care: The Pease Brothers
The Pease brothers, Kyle and Brent, have achieved some amazing athletic feats: dozens of triathlons, two Ironman races, and the New York City Marathon amongst others.

But, what makes them really special is the challenges they’ve overcome together to accomplish these accolades. Kyle was born with Cerebral Palsy, a condition which gives him limited mobility and confines him to a wheelchair.

In this Sharing Care feature, the brothers share their accomplishments, as well as how we can all learn to overcome our own obstacles and never give up.

They also discuss the Kyle Pease Foundation, through which they now help disabled athletes and kids achieve their own dreams.
