It’s Time To Cry: After Bride’s Death, Bridesmaids Wear Their Gowns To A Mud Race In Her Honor

Shannon Hall, a 24-year-old from central Wisconsin, was set to marry on October 4 when she tragically lost her life two weeks ago in a car accident. She’s survived by five brothers and four sisters, and all of her sisters were to be bridesmaids in her wedding. Before her passing, they’d signed up for the Udder Mudder charity mud race, and Shannon had urged the ladies to do the race in formal dresses. Since they’ll no longer be wearing their bridesmaids dresses next month, the women decided they’d be the perfect attire for the race. On Saturday, 27 people who knew and loved Shannon teamed up to make it through the obstacle course. Shannon’s fiance, Justin Cyzan, was in the accident with Shannon and is still recovering from his injuries, but he was able to photograph the event. For a few hours, the grieving family had a reason to smile and laugh again — and to make Shannon proud. [ABC]
