You are going to meet some incredible heroes as we prepare for this year's FOX 8 FOX Trot.

They are veterans working through incredible obstacles with the help of 'Wounded Warrior Project.'

Sgt. Shane Parsons is one of those veterans. He lost his legs in Iraq after a roadside bomb blew up his Humvee. He also suffered a traumatic brain injury.

During the first few months while Shane was at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center, hope came after a visit by someone with 'Wounded Warrior Project.'

Wounded warriors are there to help families, veterans and service members survive from the battlefield, both mentally and physically.

All of the money raised at this year's FOX Trot is going directly to the 'Wounded Warrior Project.'

The FOX 8 Fox Trot is set for Sunday, Aug. 24. It's the second annual event, presented by your Northern Ohio Honda Dealers.


It will place at Voinovich Park right by the Rock Hall in Cleveland.

You can sign up to run in the 5K or the one-mile walk.

Everyone who registers will get a FOX Trot T-shirt and a Wounded Warrior Project bracelet.
