Coro CARES sends protein bars to Marines

Coro CARES helped 3rd Battalion - Kilo Company - Platoon 3073 CRUSH the CRUCIBLE by sending hundreds of protein bars to keep them powered up during the difficult challenge. What is the Crucible? It is a 54 hour, 40 mile challenge that must be completed with only 8 hours of sleep total. This challenge must be completed for them to become Marines. Protein bars are the perfect ready to eat meal because they are light weight yet can help sustain the Marine for long periods of time. Coro CARES saw this as a great opportunity to help and collected hundreds of protein bars to aid in their effort to CRUSH the CRUCIBLE.

The Holcomb Bridge Hustle 5K 2013

Coro CARES partnered with The Kyle Pease Foundation and joined in to participate in the Holcombe Bridge Hustle 5K to benefit Holcombe Bridge Middle School. It was a pretty cold day, but the atmosphere was so upbeat that no one was really complaining about the cold. Coro CARES raced along side a Kyle Pease Foundation athlete and placed 3rd in the Assisted Athlete Division! Way to go Kyle Pease Foundation and Coro CARES.

The Kyle Pease Foundation

Coro is introducing a new fundraising and community outreach program called Coro CARES.

Coro CARES (Community, Action, Rewarding, Enduring, Service) is an annual charitable fundraising and team building effort that strives to enhance the quality of life in our community through financial support, community service and partnerships with local non-profit organizations.  For 2013, Coro CARES will be partnering with The Kyle Pease Foundation (“KPF”)   www.kylepeasefoundation.org

KPF’s mission is to create awareness and raise funds for people with disabilities, by providing assistance to meet their individual needs through sports.  Since its inception, KPF has supported more than 25 athletes in over a dozen races.  Unlike other sports in which people with disabilities participate in “special” events separate from non-disabled athletes, KPF’s athletes do not run in a separate race.  They are on the same start line and must face the same challenges on the course as everyone else.

Coro CARES’ goal is to raise money to purchase much-needed equipment that will enable KPF to expand the number of athletes that it can support in future races.  Coro’s partners and staff will sponsor, volunteer and run along with the KPF athletes in the 2013 Holcomb Hustle 5K www.holcombbridgepta.com/event/hustle-5k-2013/ on November 9, 2013.  We welcome your support and participation in the event.  Should you wish to volunteer your time, please contact Evan Reiss at 404-846-4038 or at ereiss@cororealty.com.  In addition, we ask for your financial support of our partnership with KPF.  The highlights of this partnership are as follows:

KPF is a registered 501c3 non-profit organization.  As a result, all donations are tax deductible. 

We are asking for donations to KPF to help us reach our goal of raising $12,000 for KPF.  Checks can be made payable to “The Kyle Pease Foundation” and sent to Teresa Pastore, Coro Realty Advisors, LLC, 3715 Northside Pkwy, Bldg 400, Suite 100, Atlanta GA 30327.

Coro Realty will match every dollar contributed up to our goal.

Any contribution, big or small, would be appreciated.  For those wishing to sponsor Coro CARES, below please find suggested contributions:

Benefactor $500

Benefactor’s name will be posted on the Coro water tables along the race course, worn on the shirts of Coro’s staff participating in the event and placed as “Benefactor” on Coro’s media related to the event.

Partner $250

Partner’s name will be posted on the Coro water tables along the race course and on the shirts of Coro’s staff participating in the event.
