WOW! Where did 10 years go?!?! Corey Burns has been part of the Ryan’s Run campaign since 2010 and will run NYC alongside the Ryan’s Run crew for the 8th time, which will make 209.6 miles logged in the 5 boroughs.
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, the 5-time Mid-Atlantic Nominated Storyteller is trying to keep pace with his two children (Corey &Téa) with his wife (Erin) at home. You can also find him running the many hills in Factoryville in preparation for November’s race.
Corey is 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 help Corey, and the entire "WNEP's Ryan's Run 10" team by continuing to make this award-winning campaign help children and adults with disabilities served by Allied Services, "Make Miracles Happen!"
