A local teen with a rare form of muscular dystrophy didn't let that stop him from competing in his first triathlon at Maumee Bay State Park.

Braedan Henegar, 13, couldn't fully participate so his team stepped in, pulling him in a bike trailer for the biking portion and in a jogger chair for the 5K marathon. 

Volunteers from the Nationwide Children's Hospital were the ones to help out. 

Henegar's goal is to raise awareness about his disorder and funding for a cure.

"I’m so proud of him, we’re so proud of him my husband and I just can not be any more proud of him than we are, everybody that he meets he really gives them a different outlook on life," Tammy Henegar, Braedan's mother, said.
