Bridge the Gap for ALS research in memory of Cory W. Bennett of Verona Island
The majority of the Bridge the Gap Race takes place on Verona Island. We encourage participants to leave more than footprints by contributing to this fundraiser for ALS.
Cory Wayne Bennett was a very accomplished person and has many accolades to his honor. He served in the Navy for six years after high school with four deployments: Japan (twice), Bahrain, and Diego Garcia.
Cory found ways to make lifelong friends and build memories for the unsuspecting. He was diagnosed with ALS in 2008 and tackled this disease with determination. He passed into a new world of adventure after a very courageous battle in 2015.
Cory always said that “one should live life to the fullest – if you are not living on the edge, you are taking up too much space on this earth.”
We also encourage all Bridge the Gap participants to join or contribute to the Bangor walk for ALS, to be held on August 24th.
