The recovery process continues for a 16-year-old Philo High School student injured in a motorcycle crash in May.

Over 50 riders and many other supporters turned out to Riverside Cafe Sunday for a poker run to benefit Mariah Moore. In addition to the run which covered over 120 miles, the benefit also featured a 50-50 raffle, door prizes, food, a Chinese auction, live entertainment, and a dunk tank. Mariah’s mother, Lori, said she can’t thank the community enough for their support.

"The community support has been great. Everyone’s been great. We had a lot of donations, and we just want to say thank you to everybody that came out. They’re all having a good time."

Despite many difficult injuries, Lori said her daughter is doing great with the recovery process.

"She’s actually doing really well. She has a long way to go. She has some trouble with her speech. Her legs still have some healing to do. She’s blind in her left eye, She has hearing loss in her right ear, but she’s doing pretty good."

Lori said Mariah is home now and is enrolled in therapy three times a week for speech and occupational therapy. No other benefits are planned at this time.
