Keeping the Journey Alive-

On July 21, 2016, Orion Owens ran from a sandy shoreline and dove into a recreational lake to join 4 other friends for a moonlight swim in Eden, Utah. Still to this day his friends don’t understand what he did differently to immediately sustain a catastrophic spinal cord injury bursting his C6 vertebrae paralyzing him from the chest down and unconscious underwater for nearly 5-7 minutes. He was revived by his friend Marshall, air lifted to the closest trauma center in Utah and one week later flown to Craig Hospital in Denver, CO specializing in spinal cord injuries. A playful night turned tragic for Orion, his family and friends.

This past week Orion has been taking Sit-Ski lessons. It is tough! Many falls learning to remain upright with only arm and shoulder strength. Thanks to donations he can continue out-of-pocket therapy helping him to improve and get strong enough to participate in these sports.

Orion is getting ready to try adaptive skiing this winter. It is donations like these that have helped him with ongoing therapy to get strong enough to do this. Thanks! Will post update of Orion on the mountain later this month.
