St. George Sego Lily Makes History,
by Britton Emery Auman
After 5 spectacular years of hosting the Sego Lily’s Annual bike event in Salt Lake City, the St. George Sego Lily and the Deaf Community decided to make history by hosting the first ever walk/bike event at Snow Canyon State Park Saturday, April 25, 2015. The rainstorm from the night before brought more details out of those beautiful red canyons. The vivid light green desert plants were glowing luminously! It wasn’t too wet. It wasn’t too hot either. Mother Nature decided to hold up the rain in order for participants to enjoy the event! It was a perfectly cool morning to spend with a great warm-hearted group of community members coming together to show support for Deaf, Hard of Hearing and Deaf Blind victims.
Here’s a glimpse of the historical day: the opening ceremony began with a survivor story shared by Erin Andresen and Mariah Carey’s song “Hero” being signed by Britton and Stephanie, a dedicated and caring group of individuals doing the 5k walk and 15k ride along the beautiful scenic route of red sand and rocks, the event concluded with the following: SUDHHP representative, Diego Acosta expressing support for Sego Lily programs, the drawing of raffle prizes, and free handouts from the Red Rock Bicycle Company. It was indeed a day to remember!
Lastly, Sego Lily would like to thank Snow Canyon for allowing Sego Lily to host the event at their majestic park and for the sponsors for their generous donations. Sego Lily also thanks the volunteers for dedicating their time and talents to the event. Sego Lily couldn’t have done this without them!
