Marine Who Lost Both Legs Participates In 31 Marathons To Raise Money For Wounded Veterans
October 19, 2017
Finishing one marathon is already a good testament to everyone’s physical and mental abilities, but running 31 of them seems beyond the possibility. Rob Jones, a marine veteran who lost both legs in Afghanistan, decided to accept the challenge.
In 2010, Rob Jones was deployed to Afghanistan. During his patrol, Rob stepped on a mine that exploded beneath him. After several difficult operations, his both legs were amputated. While recovering physically and mentally from his wounds, the marine decided that his special condition would not stop him from living the full life.
