In Memory of a Soldier

In Memory of a Soldier

SARATOGA SPRINGS — Help celebrate spring on April 8 with Taylor’s Heroes for their annual ‘Egg-Stravaganza’ featuring special guests, Mayor Joanne Yepsen and The Easter Bunny. 

The Egg-Stravaganza benefits Taylor’s Heroes, a non-profit in Saratoga Springs offering free programs in fitness and nutrition for kids 8 to 18 founded in memory of David Taylor Miller, who was killed in Afghanistan while serving in the U.S. Army.

Bring your friends and family to Congress Park to enjoy an Easter Egg Hunt, games, a silent auction, face and nail painting, story readings and more.  The Carousel will be open, and there will be a separate egg hunt area for those aged 5 and under. 

Tickets are $10 for children aged 2 to 12 years old. Tickets may be purchased at the door or in advance by visiting www.brownpapertickets.com/event/2495601. Rain date is 1 to 4 p.m. on Sunday, April 9.

Taylor’s Heroes is a non-profit organization created in 2011 in memory of the 2009 Saratoga Springs High School graduate. Leslie Miller, board president and mother of Taylor, and a board of advisors came up with a plan of action to help kids and teens establish healthy eating and exercise habits that they can carry through their lifetime. The curriculum centers on a free 14-week fitness and nutrition program for children aged 8 through 18. 

Participants are given a free membership to the Saratoga Regional YMCA for three months; weekly group personal training; the opportunity to try any two sports; nutrition and cooking classes with their family; a food diary to track daily diet and activity; and an opportunity to win prizes at the completion of the program.
