RIBI Young Citizens winners 2012 - RIBI
• Ben McBean - Plymouth
24 year old Ben was a Marine. Five months into his tour of duty in Southern Afghanistan when he stepped on an explosive. Ben lost the lower part of his right leg and much of his left arm. Four years on and his body is still riddled with shrapnel which has to be removed. Despite horrific injuries, Ben has refused to allow his life to be limited and has taken on many fundraising challenges including climbing to Everest Base Camp and running the London Marathon twice. It is this determination and resilience which inspires those who come into contact with him, including Prince Harry who has frequently met him. Ben is grateful to be alive and spends his time motivating others to raise awareness that there is life after disaster. Ben has been nominated by the Rotary Club of Plymouth Mayflower.
