“WE WILL RUN UNTIL SHE RUNS WITH US”
In 2010, Corey and Christy made a pact deciding to get fit and train over the next year to run the Rock n Roll Half Marathon in Philadelphia, PA. 2 weeks later, at the start of her senior year of high school, Corey was in a horrible car accident sustaining serious brain injuries. Determined to help Corey with her long and slow recovery, Christy and her family put a team together to raise money. “We will run until she runs with us.” is our team's motto. Our first year, we had 12 runners. This year we have 45 runners. This is not a large, bureaucratic charity. It is a bunch of people making a difference in one girl's life. To date we have raised about $40,000,**** and every cent has gone directly to Corey's care. Corey is making huge strides in her recovery because these funds have given her access to therapy and equipment that would otherwise be untouchable. Every year my friends Brian and Christine run proudly with this team. They told me how they get to see Corey and her progress and about meeting amazing people on the team. As many of you know, I compete in several races per year. And this year they are letting me run with them. Please consider donating or joining the team to run with us. Every little bit helps. Thanks.
****Before the 2013 race
I was so excited when I asked Christine if I could run this year and not just donate and she said "Of Course." So Saturday morning I headed to Christine and Brian's house and we headed down to Philly. We got there with plenty of time for the expo and I finally met some teammates in person.
