Rock & Roll World Record Dance
Saturday, November 30, 2013 at 2:00 PM (PST)
There are some people that come into your lives and instantly touch your heart; Korey Soderman does just that. Diagnosed with Cerebral Palsy shortly after birth, Korey has defeated all odds to live a normal life by doing what others do, just a little bit differently. Now 22, he serves as an inspiration to his classmates, community and others facing challenges just like his.
Kenny Loggins’ song “This Is It,” empowered Wendy, Korey’s mother, to give Korey the opportunity to live despite his challenging prognosis when she only had a few minutes to decide the fate of Korey and his twin Kyle. It was Fifteen years ago when Wendy first shared her amazing story of grace and courage inspired by Kenny Loggins. Every year since then, they have visited different concert venues throughout the country to hear “This Is It” performed live. Their amazing story is a A&E Documentary “Between the Lines” narrated by Robert Downey Jr. The power of music has played an integral part in Korey's life, touching his soul and enriching his spirit. For that very reason, Korey’s latest endeavor is to break the World Record for the largest wheelchair dance ever! Kenny Loggins, now a close friend to the Soderman family, will be writing a special rendition of “This Is It” just for Korey and the World Record Event.
The wheelchair dance will bring local, regional and national community together for this milestone event. Not only will this event be a landmark for the city and set a world record, Korey’s joyful excitement for life will lead by example and inspire others.
