Man Named
Visiting Central Ohio this Weekend

KABOOM! On June 14, 1969 Bob Wieland's life went one way and his legs went another!
That was the day that Bob's legs were BLOWN OFF after stepping on a booby trapped mortar in Vietnam while running to aid his fellow soldiers as a combat medic. Bob's life was changed instantly. He passionately says "I lost both legs, but I didn't lose my heart!"

This Saturday, October 27th @ 6:00pm
Sunday, October 28th 2012 @ 9:30am and 11:15am

Vietnam veteran Bob “Mr. Inspiration” Wieland will share his
spectacular journey
through life, in celebration of our country, and the sacrifice of our men and women
in the Armed Forces!

Wieland travels to Ohio from Arcadia, California, and is currently on
“Celebrate America Tour” challenging all to do a measure more. On the tour,
he is speaking at high schools, colleges, corporate events, and churches.

While the world is enamored with "Reality TV," Bob Wieland has lived life for real!
As he says, “The Joy has been in the Journey!”

He has lived life on the edge. A rare breed who has experienced seemingly
insurmountable obstacles. He has accomplished incredible achievements that
have inspired others to go onward to "TAKE THE CHALLENGE" to believe
they possess, within themselves, what it takes to be champions in life!

 Bob is an extreme sports enthusiast. He is a four-time world champ in the
bench press with a personal best lift of 507 pounds, former strength coach
with the NFL (Green Bay Packers), and the only double amputee to complete the
grueling Iron Man Triathlon in Hawaii, WITHOUT the use of a wheel chair!

He has also competed in the LA and NYC marathons but Bob's greatest joy is
motivational speaking. Because of his ability to inspire others,
former president, Ronald Reagan, first recognized him as "Mr. Inspiration."

Bob Wieland is especially known for walking across America (ON HIS ARMS) from
LA to DC starting in 1982 and ending in 1986. This was an extreme challenge
that many name as the greatest athletic achievement of all time.

People Magazine has called Bob Wieland one of the SIX most
amazing Americans in the last 20 years!  

Bob’s fighting spirit has been an inspiration to millions around the world!
His life story is being made into a major motion picture and he
continues to challenge others to
"Always remember that it's too soon to quit!"
