Congratulations, Rob Jones!

April 16th, 2014

The numbers are amazing: Over $125,000 raised as the result of traveling more than 5,200 miles by bicycle over nearly 200 days using two prosthetic legs to propel one amazing Marine from Bar Harbor, Maine to San Diego, California—and here’s one more amazing number: DoubleTree by Hilton hotels has made a promise to Rob Jones and will continue the efforts to raise his ultimate goal of $1 million throughout this year! Throughout his journey, Rob faced extreme weather, appeared on the Today Show, and raised awareness about the Semper Fi Fund in ways no one could have ever imagined.

Congratulations, Rob, on completing what must have been a truly life-changing journey—and thank you for all you’ve done for injured service members and for our country!
