SI Sportskids of the Year

My stepdad sent this touching video to me this week. The two boys in the video are the 2012 Sports Illustrated Sportskids of the Year, and it is easy to see why they were chosen for the award. Cayden is seven years old and has Cerebral Palsy. His brother, Conner, is nine years old, and decided to run Triathlons with his brother because he could see how happy he was when they ran together. 

Lebron James, who was the recipient of the Sport's Illustrated Sportsmen of the Year, gets up at the end of this clip to talk about how these two boys are the real ones worth honoring and that any parent would love to see their kids take care of each other the way these two boys do.

The clip is about 5 minutes long... you may want to grab your tissues first. ;)
