LAWTON Okla_ A record-setting mountain climber from Oklahoma shared his story at Cameron University Wednesday night. What makes his accomplishment special, is he only has one leg.
His name is Todd Huston. He lost his leg when he was 14 after it got caught in a boat propeller.
The record he holds is for climbing to the highest elevation in each of the 50 states, in just 66 days. Now he tours the country as an author and a motivational speaker.
Huston told the crowd he didn’t let his disability hold him back, so they shouldn’t hold themselves back from whatever they hope to achieve.
