BENEFITING: CAMP TO BELONG

Cory Scheer

THE STORY:

THE STORY:
In July of 2013, I was finishing a cycling training ride in preparation for a full ironman triathlon to be attempted later that September. Less than a mile from home, I was struck by a motorist and sustained significant injuries including: hairline fractures to the spine, a concussion despite wearing a properly fitted helmet, various contusions, and multiple lacerations to my back, hip, arms, face, and ear that resulted in 300 stitches. Amazingly, there were no internal injuries, major bone fractures, spinal cord compromises, or injuries to tendons or ligaments. Multiple medical professional called the incident and subsequent recovery a "medical miracle". After only 2 days in the hospital, I began the recovery process and was back to running just 4 weeks post-accident.

During my recovery, I have often reflected on the moments right before being loaded onto the ambulance. Life is pretty simple when you are completely in need of help, unable to care for yourself, and deeply affected by life's seemingly unfair circumstances. As a result of a dependence on my faith, family, and friends, I have thankfully moved from Rescue to Recovery to a Rebuilding of my priorities. At the top of the priority list: find ways to tell my story and encourage others to give to organizations that are meeting this world's deepest needs. How can I encourage others to do something to make a difference? How can I find ways to inspire others to help others? Although my competitive cycling days are over, my endurance endeavors are now focused on running 12 marathons in 12 months for 5 Charities that meet basic needs. I hope that you will join me in my efforts to support this great organization.
