MEDFORD, Ore. — An acclaimed speaker is set to hit the stage to tell teens his story. He’s a true example of doing a lot with a little.

Nick Vujicic is a motivational speaker from Australia who was born with no arms and no legs. He visited Ashland last year and told his inspirational story to teens.

Friday night’s event is all part of the ‘I Heart Rogue Valley’ event. It continues when more than a thousand volunteers will go out across the Rogue Valley and work in the community. Organizers say having the acclaimed speaker visit was the icing on the cake.

Nick will also kick off the volunteer event Saturday morning starting at 8:30 a.m.
