Welcome to Taylor's Heroes

Taylor’s Heroes is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that provides fitness and nutrition programs to children who want to lead a more active and healthy lifestyle. The organization was founded in memory of Taylor Miller, who was a Saratoga Springs High School graduate who was killed in Afghanistan in a suicide bomb attack on June 21, 2010.

Like many children, Taylor had struggled throughout his life with his weight and fitness. But prior to enlisting in the Army, Taylor set his sights on a specific goal of becoming physically fit. Through his own determination, and the support of friends and family, he lost over 60 pounds. He went from not being able to run more than a few yards, to running miles. Most importantly, he built his confidence and self-esteem in the process.

 

Unfortunately, Taylor’s life was cut short at age 19, just as he was enjoying all the benefits of being fit and healthy. To honor Taylor’s memory, Taylor’s Heroes would like to help you find the success Taylor experienced while you are young and have a lifetime to enjoy it. 

 

Taylor's Heroes accepts children ages 8-18 for a fun, FREE, 3-month program that includes weekly classes with a personal trainer, nutrition classes, 2 new sports/activities to try and the chance to win valuable gift cards at the end of the program. For more information, see our Program Page or email us at info@taylorsheroes.org.
