Good Morning Everyone!
Wow what an amazing weekend we had at COR. This past weekend was the Spartan Super and Sprint at Fort Carson where we ran and honored our 3 COR Warriors! Kym made it out on Saturday and was the best cheerleader anyone could ask for and Ellie was able to join us Saturday afternoon and Sunday! There truly is so much to talk about but I am only going to focus on the highlights.
First off, COR won biggest team for both Saturday Super and Sunday Sprint. We had over 300 people signed up! On Saturday, Kym was able to make it for the presentation where we honored the girls. COR gave Tiffany, Corrina’s daughter, the trophy from last year as well as a flag that was signed and ran during the Spartan Utah. On top of that here is the video of COR doing “Sally” in honor of Corrina (she definitely was smiling).
As I mentioned, Kym was a big cheerleader to everyone there! She even stood up to her name as “Tutu Princess” by wearing her bright tutu! Here are some pictures of Kym from Saturday.
On Sunday, Ellie (aka Team Eli), came back to walk the Sprint course. She has been active walking on average 6 miles a day but that is flat ground. Her doctor cleared her to walk the 5.3 mile course that entailed hills but to just be careful! Prior to the start, Spartan took a moment to honor the 3 COR Warriors. Here is a the video for you to understand the community, family and love we have for these ladies.
Ellie was on a mission to finish this 5.3 mile course that included hills and I mean brutal hills where some people had to stop to catch their breathe or stretch their muscles but this lady right here was a BEAST and true WARRIOR. She didn’t stop once! She kept going passing people left and right. Each hill was a mental, physical and emotional battle to see where she has come from 11 weeks ago. Here are just a couple photos that were take along the way but the ABSOLUTE highlight of the day was her crossing the finish line and being medaled by Tiffany while the rest of the COR team was there to cheer her on! (video below)
The one thing that is consistent in all these videos and photos is that Ellie and Kym have a nonstop smile on their faces. Their journey is still far from over but all this love, support and donations are helping tremendously. Neither of them are able to be back at work yet and still have ton of medical appointments to attend.
Medals will still be available after the month of May until they are sold out but the prizes are only for those that register and pay in May. So what is stopping you? The cost is $25 with $20 going DIRECTLY to the 3 girls and their families. We have sold about 350 medals as of today (May 17, 2017) with a ton more available. Please share their story and participate in this great cause! Medals are shipped out weekly!
For everyone that has donated or is participating THANK YOU!!! The girls love seeing photos so please keep posting them using #3corwarriors and please email me them (firstname.lastname@example.org).
