A Hero’s Dedication
Rob Jones was stationed in Afghanistan in 2010 when an IED (Improvised Explosive Device) exploded, which resulted in a double amputation of his legs above the knees. He could have easily taken on the victim’s role and pitied himself. But for former Columbian Rob Jones, that was not an option.
Rob Jones didn’t allow his disability to define him. Instead, he defined his life and opened up a new chapter. In 2012, two years after that tragic incident, Rob participated in the 2012 London Paralympics where Rob took home the bronze medal. But Rob wouldn’t stop there.
Rob Jones is now cycling 5,500 miles from Maine to California to raise funds for veterans organizations. He recently stopped in his old stomping grounds in Marriottsville, and inspired Chapelgate Christian Academy.
He Won’t Give Up
Bob Quick isn’t supposed to be here. Bob has suffered heart attacks and has had 16 stents put in his heart. Bob received a pacemaker in April of 2013. And Bob still won’t give up!
Bob Quick is now on his own cycling tour from Utah, raising money for five different charities. And still Bob does even more. Bob stops at every fire station he crosses and meets the firemen who serve.
This is just a reminder that no matter what happens in life, anyone with anything can still accomplish great things! Bring your dedication and perseverance!
