RUSSELL OELSCHLAGER Bear Creek, PA Team Member 2018 & 2019

I was lucky enough to be selected to represent MotorWorld Toyota last year and I’m honored to be asked to do it once again this year. WNEP’s Team Allied Services is such a positive campaign that benefits Allied Services and I’m happy to be a part of it this year.

Russell Oelschlager of Bear Creek is a mechanic at MotorWorld Toyota in Wilkes-Barre. The company is a major sponsor of WNEP’s Team Allied Services 10 and Russell is proud to be representing MotorWorld Toyota in the 2019 TCS New York City Marathon. Russell is running to raise funds and awareness for children and adults with disabilities at Allied Services.

This year, he is running in honor of Kyle Nichols of Kingston. At a young age, Kyle suffered a brain injury that left him with muscle spasticity and limited mobility. He attends therapy at Heinz Rehab Hospital in Wilkes-Barre where he works hard to maintain his strength and mobility.

Kyle enjoys spending time with his brother; they share an interest in nature, especially snakes and geckos! Kyle has 9 pet snakes at home!

In the fall, Kyle will be entering 9th grade. He is interested in Law Enforcement and carpentry, and hopes to attend classes at the West Side Career and Technology Center. We’ll be cheering for Kyle and Russell this fall.
