Sibling Summit H.S. LAX Standouts Organize Spin Class to Support Brain Cancer Research Mar. 1; Limited Bike Slots Available

Catherine and John Cordrey.

SUMMIT, NJ - Catherine and John Cordrey, along with their Summit High School Lacrosse teammates, their parents, and friends, will host a special spin class fundraiser March 1, with all contributions going to The Kortney Rose Foundation.

The Kortney Rose Foundation supports pediatric brain cancer research at Children's Specialized Hospital in Philadelphia. To date, the Foundation has raised nearly $1 million for brain cancer research.

Kortney Rose was a family friend of the Cordreys, and would be graduating from high school this year. She succumbed to a brain tumor in 2004 -- at the age of 9 -- after a brief battle with a brain stem glioma.

There were no treatments at the time she was battling her disease, and all her parents could do for her was wait for the inevitable. Determined that other families would one day have hope, her mom -- Kristen Gillette -- started the Foundation. 

Catherine (Class of 2016) and John Cordrey (Class of 2015) have been involved with the Foundation in the past and, last August, Catherine ran Kortney's Challenge at Monmouth Raceway. Inspired by the work of the Foundation -- and wanting to help out, the teams embraced this fundraiser.

The spin class will take place beginning at Flywheel in Millburn, begin at 2:30, with Lori Bebout serving as instructor. Open to all players, parents, and friends of Summit High School Lacrosse, the minimum donation is $30 per bike.

Limited slots in the 45-bike class remain and, to reserve a spot contact Elissa Cordrey at ecc11@verizon.net, or drop off a check made out to Kortney Rose Foundation (KRF) at 38 Oakley Avenue, Summit, NJ, 07901.  Flywheel is located at 351 Millburn Avenue.
