About Support Taylor as he Skeleton Slides to his Dream

Taylor Purdy never thought volunteering for the Olympics would change his life. But a chance assignment at the skeleton track in 2010 led to him falling in love with the sport as he watched Canadian Jon Montgomery slide down the track to a gold medal victory. Enamored, Taylor started a social media campaign with the hashtag #whynotme and set about becoming a skeleton racer.

Three years later, Taylor is training alongside his hero and recently won a berth on the Canadian Skeleton National Prospect Team to chase his Olympic dream.

In order to train and without any major sponsorship, Taylor put his career on hold and has no reliable income. But as we all know, hard work and dreams don't pay the electricity bills. So he is reaching out to fans for help and raising money for travel costs, team fees, strength and speed coaching, as well as ice house time and, equipment.
