Taylor Leigh 

My name is Taylor Leigh and I am a junior mechanical engineering student at WKU. I am originally from Liberty, KY a small town right in the middle of the bluegrass. 

I am riding this summer because I know how precious loved ones are to their families. I cherish the memories I have with my family and these memories are something that we each share and allow us to bond with one another. I cant imagine what it must be like to have a loved one that loses this bond slowly overtime. I cant imagine the effects that this must have on the ones caring for the individual as they become more and more dependent on others. I have been blessed with the health ability and time it takes to make a difference and I just couldn't justify not taking this opportunity to contribute.
