3 COR Warriors
Thank you all for being a part of this amazing team. Late Friday night/Early Saturday morning, 3 ladies of the Colorado Obstacle Racers team were involved in a serious car accident still under investigation.
We unfortunately lost Corrina Vaden, our thoughts and prayers are now with her and our family.
Kym Butcher, a single mother of a beautiful teenage daughter, has 1 broken legs, had her spleen removed, lots of swelling and many more surgeries to come. Kym is still in the ICU.
Elizabeth Rotter, a friend to so many and always there to support her friends and fellow racers, has a collapsed lung (thankfully she is breathing on her own now), a broken arm and head trauma. Elizabeth is out of the ICU.
The families have collectively decided to reach out as a group with regards to this gofundme campaign. We are confident this effort will allow the most people who would like to contribute to be able to do so, spreading the word far and wide as quickly as possible- with ALL of YOUR Help!
Our goal of $60k is very realistic, and we fully expect it to be met and surpassed with the help of all of you, your friends, family, communities and your generosity in this time of need.
We recognize that you may wish to donate directly to an individual(s). Please include this in the comments at donation, or in a direct message, and it will be honored.
We will be splitting the money 3 ways between the families for
(plus or minus the specified donations)
These will be used for any medical, rehab or other damages related to the accident
Corrina’s family may need help with funeral some cost.
Every dollar counts whether it’s $5, $20, $1000… anything is greatly appreciated and will go to helping these wonderful women and their families in this time of need. Please, spread the word and thank you for your help!
We are a team of Obstacle racing enthusiasts. I am one of the leaders of said team and dear friend of all three ladies.
We will be splitting the money evenly between the girls to pay for medical bills and cost.
MRG is posting about our campaign as well!!
Good friend and team Captain of COR
2. That you will be withdrawing the funds in your name. The money will go to the team account then split amongst the families evenly. (Plus or minus the amounts stated to individual girls by donors)
3. How exactly you will be delivering the funds to your beneficiaries. We will be hand delivering a check to each family and or may have a huge gathering once we hit our goal.
Help spread the word!
Sharing this to all of my friends. I was in a car accident a few months, and many of my Spartan friends stepped up to help me at that time. We are a family. I'm so sorry for the loss of Corrina, and I hope that Kym and Elizabeth recovery fully with time. We're here for you, ladies. I know first-hand how horrible an experience like this is, and I want you to know that you are not alone. Aroo!
It's taken a while to put this into words...The OCR community of which these ladies are a part is clearly very large and reaches across the globe. It's members possess a spirit of camaraderie, kindness, caring and helpfulness which is unsurpassed in today's world. Even if they don't know you, they will support and encourage you...and they'll be there to help you get pass insurmountable hurdles. Whether it be the wall at a race or life's challenges, such as Kym. Elle, and Corrina's family are now facing, they're always there! It is gut wrenching and heartbreaking to lose one and see the others suffering like this! ...and so senseless that these ladies who do so much to keep the mind, body and spirit so well conditioned have been so traumatized by the mistakes and poor choices of another! Ladies, you are loved and supported. CORrinna, you are missed. OCR community, keep doing what you do! The world needs you!
It will not let me donate... it says there is an issue with the campaign...
Hey ladies! I'm over here cheering you on! Hearing your updates are an inspiration! Keep those chins up and chests out. You WILL get through this. You are AMAZING!
