Rob Jones is running his mouth after running 31 marathons

0

In 2010, U.S. Marine Corps sergeant Rob Jones lost both his legs after stepping on an IED. Ever since, he has made it his mission to raise awareness for wounded veterans through his work with the Paralympics and nationwide bike rides.

On Veterans Day, Jones completed an amazing feat of running his 31st marathon in 31 days in 31 cities. The money he raised during his races went toward wounded veteran charities.

Now Melwood, a company based in D.C. that helps wounded vets, is honoring Rob by making him the keynote speaker at their 2017 Ability Awards Benefit. They're hoping his inspirational story will inspire others to contribute.
