Corey Beattie was a senior at Avon Grove High School in PA, anxiously awaiting her acceptance into culinary school when a car accident changed her life.

On October 2, 2010 Corey was the passenger in a horrible car accident in New London PA. She was hit directly on her side and the accident left her with a global brain trauma, a broken neck, femur and clavicle. After 3 weeks in the ICU and multiple surgeries, Corey was transferred to Bryn Mawr Rehabilitation Hospital. All of Corey's broken bones have healed but she is still fighting to recover from her global brain trauma. Recovery for this type of injury is very slow. She receives intense physical, cognitive, and speech therapy daily and is making slow but steady progress.

Corey has since been released from rehab and is now home with round the clock care and therapies. She has a long road ahead of her which will be very costly. Funds raised from our half-marathon will go towards funding Corey’s medical bills, purchase the ongoing medical supplies, and the PT/OT/Speech equipment needed to help her continue her rehabilitation at home. Additionally, we will help subsidize the services of trained professionals to insure Corey's continued progress.

Our goal is to get Corey up and in a kitchen cooking where she is happiest. She is a fighter, doesn't like it when you tell her no, and she certainly never gives up on a dream. Just two short weeks before the accident she came to support Kerri and Christy's husband George as they competed in the Rock n Roll Philadelphia Half Marathon. Corey told Christy that she could never imagine doing a half-marathon, but if Christy would do it with her, they would run it this year in 2011.

Well here we are eight months later, and we are asking for your help. This September, we are forming a team to run for Corey at the Rock n Roll Philadelphia Half Marathon, and will continue to do so each year until she can run with us. In addition to running, we would like to raise money to ultimately assist in her fight each day to recover and run one day. Funds raised from our half-marathon will go towards funding Corey’s medical bills, purchase the ongoing medical supplies, and the PT/OT/Speech equipment needed to help her continue her rehabilitation at home. Additionally, we will help subsidize the services of trained professionals to insure Corey's continued progress.

If you would like to join us in our quest, please contact Kerri Palamara or Christy Palamara Primrose via Face book (or by emailing kerripalamara@gmail.com). We can direct you to where you need to go to sign up and get training advice in order to prepare for the race. 

The race is Sunday September 18th, and we would love it for you to come and support us. Thank you in advance for your help with this, together we can make a difference!
