CFML-Plymouth Meeting Athletes Launch The Randolph Group to Support Dual Disability and Mental Health Needs

Merrilee and I both come from families with members who are mentally handicapped. In my case, it was my cousin Julia. Our family relocated from Florida to Alabama to assist my aunt and uncle in caring for Julie. Despite her inability to communicate verbally, I’ve always considered Julie to be the most influential teacher in my life.

Merrilee’s cousin Sam, who resides locally in Chester County, lives in a group home. He has a passion for playing the drums and possesses an encyclopedic knowledge of the Beatles and the Eagles. It’s individuals like Sam and Julia that draw our attention to stories like that of CFML – Plymouth Meeting athletes Lisa Corley, Danae and Janice Logan.

Just last week, they launched their inaugural business venture, The Randolph Logan Group, which provides housing support for individuals with both developmental and mental health challenges. At CFML, our members are involved in remarkable endeavors, and we occasionally share these stories to remind you that being part of CFML means being part of a larger community beyond just fitness—a community of exceptional individuals who support their communities and pursue their passions.

If you’re interested in learning more about The Randolph Group, you can find additional information here. And if you’d like to show your support for their new business, consider leaving them a 5-star review.
