You may be asking yourself, why are they holding this race? This 5K is a for a charity that gives scholarships towards education and recognizes those students who are not afraid to stand apart from others and make a difference in the world. Check out some of Tyler’s and Taylor’s story...Tyler loved and protected his little sister Taylor. Due to a tragic accident, Tyler drowned while attending Summer School at Harvard University.
He was a young man that was an example of stepping up and stepping out to make the dreams and goals one may have, happen! Taylor was born with a chromosomal disorder. Doctors said that she would not walk or talk. Leonie (her mom) and Tyler learned sign language so that they could communicate with Taylor. Through their example, she has overcome the challenges that were told to her family of a life she could not live. She overcame them to the point that even the Doctors are amazed. In 2015, Taylor received a bronze medal for her age group in the Paulding County Special Olympics Run/Walk! Many people do not know this, but Tyler named his little sister. He loved her and graciously accepted her disability by showing everyone that she had the ability to achieve greatness! If Taylor could do a run/walk when the Doctors said she could not...YOU CAN TOO!! We are happy to announce that this 5K is for YOU! If Taylor can do it, YOU CAN DO IT!
We also welcome donations to help enhance young lives around us so they can have a successful future! We welcome all donations. Our goal is to give to more than one young person per event! Therefore, you are cordially invited to the First Annual Tyler Greene & Taylor Grant Foundation 5K!
ONLY YOU CAN MAKE IT HAPPEN AND WE BELIEVE YOU CAN!
