THE STORY:

  The rubble you see in the photos and video used to be beautiful parks and tree-lined pedestrian trails.  On September 12, 2013  everything changed.  The small town of Lyons, CO suffered severe damage from a historic flood. Four days of rain that culminated with flash floods swelled the river to enormous proportions and washed away much of what was in its path.  My inspiration to train for the Boston Marathon this year is to help my town rebuild the parks and trails that were enjoyed all year by families, children, athletes and visitors alike; and, are now unrecognizable.    
  Local runners, our school's cross country and track teams, mountain bikers, and those out for a stroll can no longer use the well connected system of trails. The river features that so many tubers, kayakers, and anglers have come to enjoy during the summer months are gone. Ball fields that were utilized by youth and adult baseball & softball leagues are covered with 3 to 6 feet of sand, silt, mud and debris. There is no sign of the picnic areas that were once filled year-round.
  Funding to rebuild the parks is beyond the town's means. It is estimated that the Town of Lyons has suffered approximately 50 million dollars in damages (excluding personal property loss). This is overwhelming considering that Lyons operates on an annual budget of 1 million or less. While FEMA, insurance, and some grants are providing assistance, additional help is needed! Please consider helping in any small way to restore the Lyons park system and create an active community that residents and visitors of all ages can enjoy again. Thank you!

  Special thanks to the Lyons High School video production students that created the film and to the art students, teacher, and cheer coach who provided the photos.
