ABOUT THE EMILY TAYLOR LEGACY PROJECT
On 18 November 2013, our world fell apart when our beloved 17 year old daughter Emily lost her battle with depression and ended her life. We were left to figure out how to live without her and survive our terrible loss.
We decided that we needed to pick ourselves up off our knees and honour her memory by helping other adolescents who struggle with mental unwellness. Since 2016, Emily's Memorial Motorcycle Ride raised over $110,000 for CASA House recreational programs, the Equine Therapy program and other unfunded and needed CASA initiatives. Emily's Memorial Horse Show which we started in 2019, has raised over $40,000 and we are excited to keep building the Horse Show with our 2023 Horse Show to be held 10 - 13 August 2023 at Hay Lakes Agriplex, Hay Lakes, Alberta.
