For those of you who don't know, the Saints to Sinners Bike Relay, is a fundraiser race for ALS/Lou Gehrig's disease. It is a race from Salt Lake City to Las Vegas in teams of 5 or 10 people.There have been people from all over the United States come to participate in it.
ALS is a disease that has no cure...and this bike race is trying to raise money and awareness to fight it.
This year, one of the participants, Creighton Rider, has ALS. The disease has started to affect his arms, but his legs are still strong. He and his wife Lisa bought this tandem bike so that he could peddle, and she could steer and brake. They put together 2 teams for the race, made up of family and friends, to make the trek down to Las Vegas. They were truly inspiring to watch.
In addition to being a good cause, the race is also a good time. Participants push their limits as they take turns riding from the scenic sights of Utah, into the blistering heat of Nevada.
They ride day and night...and into the day again.
Until they reach the finish line.
This is the winning 5 Man team.And this year for the first time, there was a 2 Man team. They amazingly and successfully made it to the end...
And they were still smiling...And Creighton? Well, he made it to the finish as well. What an emotional scene it was to watch him and his wife cross the finish line with all of their friends and family behind them, supporting them until the end.
So spread the word. For a good time and a good cause, the Saints to Sinners Bike Relay will surely create some memories for you!
