Former marine who lost both legs runs 31 marathons in 31 days

"In 2010, he lost both of his legs after stepping on an IED while serving as a Marine sergeant in Afghanistan. From that point on, his mission was to survive, recover and live. Since then, he’s biked across the United States, competed in triathlons, and even won a Paralympic medal, all to raise money for wounded veterans. He even completed the Tunnel to Tower Climb right here in Charlotte last fall."
