Left, Taylor Nelson, 18, sits in adult leader Brian Allen's "trek wheelchair." Nelson helped push Allen's customized wheelchair during the Garland Utah Stake's youth pioneer trek in Wyoming in July.
18-year-old Taylor Nelson did more than participate in a recent reenactment of the pioneer trek. He helped a friend.
Brian Allen suffered from a terrible injury during an ATV accident when he was Nelson's age, leaving him paralyzed from the waist down. But that didn't stop him from accepting the challenge when his LDS bishop asked him to participate in the trek.
So Nelson offered to push him the 27-mile-long journey.
