Head out to Mullen's Bar and Grill in Pittsburgh this Saturday, February 4th to watch the UFC 143: Diaz vs. Condit Fight and help raise funds for Marcus Corson. The "Miles Ahead for Marcus" Fundraiser is being sponsored by Bubba from 100.7FM and will begin at 7:00pm.

Here's the story on Marcus Corson:

"For those of you that don't know, on December 3, 2011, Marcus Corson, his wife Lori and daughter Bry, were at his brother Jason's daughters', (Caileigh and Gabby), birthday party. He was on a tumble track, and when he reached the end and made that final jump. He landed on the hard bar at the end of the track and both patellar tendons were ruptured. He was brought to UPMC Presbyterian Hospital and on the 5th had to have extensive surgery. Anchors were drilled into each leg to attach the patellar tendons and bring the kneecaps (that had ridden up on his thighs) back in place. There was other considerable damage to cartilage and the sleeve.

This is a life-changing accident for Marcus and those of you who know him well, know just how life changing this will be. He will have to spend a minimum of 4 weeks in a nursing home and will have months of rehab. His walking may never be the same...he may have a permanent limp and there is a 25% chance of a re-tear.

The Past…Marcus is no stranger to adversity and he is a tough guy to hold down! As a child, he had open heart surgery at the age of 3 and was told that he would never be able to play football, basketball, wrestle or participate in anything strenuous.....but Marcus is a fighter and no one tells Marcus he can't do something! As a result of his swimming prowess and determination, he was swimming 5 miles a night, 5 nights a week with Jason, and by the time he was 12, all of those health restrictions were lifted.

The Future…All of us that believe in Marcus, believe he can pull off another miracle and will not let this get him down, but he has a lot of miles ahead of him, and he will need a little help from his friends and family!"
