While many of us were relaxing over the long weekend, Rob Paylor was busy inspiring millions. The former rugby player decided to spend Labor Day achieving what some people called impossible!
In 2017, his life changed forever. He competed in the Collegiate Rugby National Championship and ended up breaking his neck. The incident left him paralyzed, and he was told he would never move his hands again, let alone walk. But Rob refused to listen! He spent the next three years working as hard as he could to prove his naysayers wrong, and on September 7, he did!
“It took me 1,220 days to achieve this goal, and it was worth every second,” he wrote. “No better way to celebrate Labor Day!”
Watch Rob stand up out of his wheelchair for the first time in the video below, and share this story to congratulate him on his victory!
