Jody and Christi Dykes of Georgia are helping their six-year-old son Jacob cope with his cerebral palsy by taking him along for the ride in local triathlons.

They use a special buggy to help while swimming, running and biking.

“Our son, he is blind and deaf, but he loves the sunshine, he loves to be outside, he loves the wind in his hair and it’s something that we could do with him,” said Jody Dykes.
