Three weeks have passed since Brendan Lyons and his girlfriend Lorena Evans were struck by a car on Sunrise Road.

First try organized a silent auction and benefit. There is also an online donation page to help contribute. So far people have contributed over $1,000.
Lyons, who is still was transferred to an inpatient rehabilitation center has been humbled by the community’s response.
“It just sounds weird asking for help when I am the one always helping others,” The 29-year-old firefighter said. “I just love giving back to my community and being on the receiving end is hard to swallow even though it may actually be helpful.”
