Taylor was a graduate of Saratoga Springs High School and he enlisted in the Army during his senior year. Sadly, he died on June 21, 2010 as a result of a suicide bomb attack in Northern Afghanistan. He was buried July 28 in Arlington with full military honors and received the Bronze Star and Purple Heart.
As many children do these days, Taylor struggled with his weight. Despite many efforts, it was his goal of entering the Army that ultimately inspired him to lose over 30 pounds. He was never happier. Taylor’s Heroes will be promoting fitness and nutrition to children in order to help them create a healthy, happy lifestyle. Our goal is to provide children with the tools and support they need to get healthy and stay healthy. This will be achieved by offering different forms of exercise and nutritional education, taught by certified professionals throughout the year. If Taylor’s Heroes can help kids learn these skills, the benefits will last a lifetime and it will be a worthy legacy for Taylor.
This year’s party will be a rock and roll theme and will be held at Universal Preservation Hall on 11/11/11 with a band, great food, silent auction, guitar hero station, photography and a cash bar.
