Record-Breaking Veteran Gets Help Through Ohio Innovation Event

LAKEWOOD, OH — James Spurgin is a unique man. He's a rare transplant to Ohio (from California), a Marine veteran, and a record-breaking competitive weightlifter. He also wants a little help doing an incredible two-handed stone lift, a feat made more challenging because he only has one functional arm. He's hoping an upcoming program run through St. Edward High School will help him accomplish his dream.

Challenge America: Makers For Veterans (CAMVETS) is gathering some of the finest minds in engineering and medicine to create solutions to some of the unique issues facing Ohio's disabled veterans. The organization is making use of the revamped and expanded Joseph & Helen Lowe Institute for Innovation at St. Ed's.
