LITTLE ROCK, AR - Running to inspire and create awareness. The Arkansas Bladrunners are gearing up for the 2014 Boston Marathon

We first introduced you to Jeff Glasbrenner, Chris Madison and Andre Slay in February. The three men lost their legs in separate accidents but refused to give up.

Today Andre went to Hangers, a prosthetic company to get a new and improved running prosthetic for the upcoming Boston Marathon.

The goal, to cross the finish for those who weren't able to last year.

"My heart went out to them cause I knew what they were going through and just the fact that now I am part of it this year at this type of magnitude is just amazing," says Slay.

Team Arkansas Bladerunners leave for Boston next week and of course I will let you know how they do.

We wish them the best of luck.
