Watch The Incredible Moment When A Paralyzed Teen Track Star Gets Back On His Feet

There’s nothing more inspirational than seeing someone overcome a devastating tragedy to achieve their dreams. Which is probably why people are so incredibly moved by this paralyzed teen track star who is walking again for the very first time.

For 19-year-old Tre Lawson, running track is more than just a sport, it’s his future.

The star runner was recruited by top schools including Auburn and Clemson before a devastating car accident in 2017 that left him paralyzed from the waist down.

Lawson was returning home from a track meet with friends when their car lost control spinning off of the road and falling down a 30-foot ravine. The crash nearly severed Lawson’s spine.

But Lawson never gave up on his track dreams.

On Sunday, the Fort Valley State University student got out of his wheelchair and made his first lap around the track since the accident.

Lawson tweeted footage of himself walking the track with the help of his walker.

His caption reads, Ive dreamed of the day when I would be finally strong enough to go around a track.

Of course, it wasn’t long before the video went viral, racking up over 3.7 million views.

This was my first time putting my feet on the track again, he told The New York Post. It was such a relief. I was just trying to show people that its time I get back to the track. I didnt really think [the video] would get as big as it did.

People were inspired by Lawson’s dedication.

The track star even started his own charity called Rolling Hope to help others who have been paralyzed.

Lawson says his inspiration and determination come from his hurdling coach Mike Binson and his family, particularly his late brother Nekaron Lawson.

I always think about my older brother. I have his picture at my bedside, and he gives me energy, he said.

The 19-year-old plans to keep walking around the track every week until he builds his strength back up.

I actually want to do one lap a week. Then, when I get stronger, I want to build to two. And finally, kick the walker to the side, Lawson said.

Go, Tre, go!
