Bikers Stop at a Very Special Lemonade Stand To Say Thank You
One little girls lemonade stand turned into a very big event recently in Indiana, and the story is sure to melt even the toughest hearts.
Daryn Sturch's 8 year old daughter Bryanne was selling lemonade outside of their home last week when she suddenly had a large group of patrons waiting in line. But it's the heartwarming back story that will have you reaching for the Kleenex.
Back in September of 2018 an accident, which injured five bikers, took place on Indiana's State Road 19. Sturch, who is a nurse, happened upon the accident and pulled over to lend assistance. She comforted the victims until paramedics arrived that day. Several of the bikers were airlifted from the scene, but luckily they all survived. The riders were from a Indiana motorcycle group known as The Milwaukee Iron and after the accident they reached out to give thanks to her for saving their lives.
Fast forward to a week ago when Sturch shared a picture on her social media of her daughter having a lemonade stand in the front of their home. The next thing she knew 30 bikers in leather and vests were pulling up to purchase lemonade from her very surprised and happy daughter. Sturch said she knew one of the bikers would maybe stop by, but had no idea they whole group would. "I had no idea how many there would be and they were so generous," Sturch said. "She was charging $1, and I bet every one of them gave a $5 or $10 or $20. Bryanne was as happy as she could be."
The lemonade stand became an emotional reunion for Sturch. “I didn’t realize the bikers who I’d helped would be at the stand, so seeing them again was extremely overwhelming.” It became quite the reunion.
I'm not crying, you're crying. Actually....we're all crying.
