Wounded Marine continues '31 Marathons in 31 Days' mission in Kansas City

"After spending a year and a half recovering, he's running about 26 miles a day for 31 days straight to raise money for a few veterans charities. “They all have their different way of helping veterans that have been wounded, find their new way of how they’re going to contribute to society and stay in the fight," Jones said. The Marine says he will reflect on his journey once he hits his goal and has realized some things he's already known. “Wounded veterans are still capable of contributing to society despite their wounds and through the support I’m getting, I’ve learned America loves veterans," he said.
