RALPH WALDO EMERSON ONCE SAID, “IT IS NOT THE LENGTH OF LIFE, BUT THE DEPTH OF LIFE.”
The Tyler Greene & Taylor Grant Foundation will hold its 3rd Annual Tyler &Taylor Foundation 5K, in memory of Tyler. The foundation offers educational scholarships to East Paulding High School seniors and swimming lesson scholarships to youth in the local community. The scholarships are awarded to those who are not afraid to stand apart from others and make a difference in the world.
Are you wondering why you should run this particular race? Tyler was a true example of stepping up and stepping out to make sure that the dreams and goals one may have, happen! Due to a tragic accident, he drowned on July 29, 2016, while attending Summer School at Harvard University.
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. Tyler loved and protected Taylor. He 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!!
