TWIN FALLS, Idaho (KMVT/KSVT) -A Twin Falls teen got a special gift Sunday from the Make-A-Wish Idaho foundation.

Shawn Powers received a pedicab to help him enjoy his favorite activity of riding bikes with his family.

He was born with a neuromuscular disorder, so Make-A-Wish stepped in to help make his wish come true.

The bike was custom made in Colorado and was delivered Sunday afternoon.

“It’s wonderful. We were able to bring people together from all over the country,” said Mo Carreon, a mission delivery coordinator for Make-A-Wish Idaho. “To put Shawn’s wish into motion and get to have family here, close family to celebrate the delivery of his pedicab. So we’re very excited to be granting a wish, especially in this current era, to be able to make people smile it’s really great.”

Shawn was thrilled to get the pedicab, immediately asking for a ride.
