On April 15th, 2013 a tragedy took place during the Boston marathon. The Tsarnev brothers detonated a bomb that killed 3 people and wounded 260 runners. Rebekah Gregory was one of the wounded runners who lost a leg but she isn't letting that stop her. This year she got back into the race and ran the last 3.5 miles of the Boston Marathon with the help of her prosthetic leg which she's named Felicia.
