Mutu Coffee and The Kyle Pease Foundation are teaming up to introduce two new amazing Fair Trade coffees to raise awareness and help differently abled athletes be included in sports.
Meet Justin "J-Dude" Knight
My favorite part of race day is seeing all my friends from The Kyle Pease Foundation and spending time with them. I practice and train to get ready for races. I ride my bike at home when it's not raining and I try to eat healthy but sometimes I don't and that's ok!
I am a part of the Walking With KPeasey team and it has changed my life! The biggest change is that I'm confident and no longer sad. I get to compete in races and meet new people, see new places and have opportunities to do new things. I have a job and this is so cool! These experiences have taught me to set goals for myself and I feel like I can do anything I set my mind to. Anything is possible for me!
In 2012, Kevin met Kyle Pease through a mutual friend. Kyle told him about a running group he had started with his brother, Brent, and invited Kevin to race with them. He thought, why not? The spectacular offer of promoting inclusion of differently abled individuals in sports had just fallen in his lap.
Kevin didn't think meeting Kyle at a coffee shop would have such an impact on his racing career, but is glad it did. It opened a world of races that he had never thought he would be able to compete in. Whether or not Kevin had done it before, each race is another chapter in his athletic career and a chance to advocate for inclusion – opportunities that should not be missed. Opportunities to erase stereotypes.
Even though Kevin competes with a crank chair, The Kyle Pease Foundation continues to provide opportunities for its athletes, whether they are push or crank chair athletes. It has been one of the best experiences of his life.
