Corey Burns (or as Ryan Leckey refers to him as “The Brother He Never Had!”) is lacing up to run the TCS NYC Marathon, yet again as part of the “Ryan’s Run” crew.
This marathon will be Corey’s sixth in all. Corey will again run alongside fellow “Team Leckey” runners, camera in hand, documenting the journey through the five boroughs. Corey’s best New York City Marathon finish time was 3:43:25 in 2011. Corey and Ryan finished last year’s race just in over 5 hours, but had a blast along the way.
When Corey is not manning the camera with Ryan for many “Leckey Live” segments in the early morning hours on WNEP-TV, where he also plays the role of Assistant Chief Photographer, and chasing his two children (Corey & Téa) with his wife (Erin) at home, you can find him training at CrossFit Scranton, and running the many hills in Factoryville in preparation for November’s race through NYC’s five boroughs.
Corey is not only excited to run as part of the “Ryan’s Run 6″ crew, but is also enthusiastic to share the inspiring stories of recovery and rehabilitation, which are at the core of this campaign. The stories from 2012’s “Ryan’s Run 3″ campaign turned “Ryan’s Recovery” are still the most inspiring. With the cancellation of the 2012 ING NYC marathon due to the damaging effects from Superstorm Sandy, “Team Leckey” rallied, on the same Sunday the marathon was to be held, to collect much needed supplies for the east coast communities affected by the storm. Ultimately, the stories from “Ryan’s Run 3 turned Ryan’s Recovery” garnered a Pennsylvania Association of Broadcasters award for “Outstanding Television Public Service Campaign.”
Please join Corey, and the entire “Ryan’s Run 6″ team in continuing to make this award winning campaign grow to a higher level for the children and adults with disabilities served by Allied Services.
