Help a young man fulfill a dream

Discussion in 'Indiana Outdoor News' started by Whacker, Jan 4, 2007.

  1. From another site... a very worthy cause.

    I would like to tell you about a young man fighting the dreadful ALS or Lou Gherigs disease.

    His Name is Eric Corey. He is 20 years old and lives in Knox Indiana. Eric is in his 5th year of battling disease as it is most times referred to as. Most ALS patients do not last 2 years after diagnosis, so Eric is putting up one heck of a fight.

    Having participated in the Youth Hunts at Steuben County, Eric is quite the deer hunter. He's deadly with a muzzleloader out past 100 yards.

    Eric is also avid turkey hunter who is nearing completion of his 1st Turkey Slam. He has already harvested an Eastern, Mirriam, and a Rio Grande. He only needs his Osceola.

    Eric is losing his battle with this degenerative disease and this spring's hunt will be probably be his last, his body is giving out on him. He would really like to get that Osceola.

    Two hunting sites are waging a fund raiser campaign to send Eric on a 3-day hunt in Florida to complete his Slam.

    Check out the following sites and if you find it in your heart please contribute to Eric’s trip.

  10. Dean,

    I’m just a foot soldier in this by just passing out the word. The two main men in this are Alex Williams of Georgia and Kevin Newland of Virginia. They got the ball a rolling for a Hoosier that they had never met, but had heard about.

    They hang out at the forum

    The fund raiser thread on NWTF is at..

    Kevin goes by bomboy (he is a bomb technician for the Virginia state police)

    Alex Williams makes turkey calls down in Georgia and goes by alex .

    You can PM either one there and ask what you can do, besides or in addition to donate money.

    I’ll PM everyone here that donates what the details are on sending their checks.

    Thanks a lot .
