About For Michael

This past Spring the world became a significantly lesser place with the passing of Michael Taylor. Mike was a son, brother, friend but mostly he was simply a terrific human being. He lit up every room he walked into with his enormous smile and deep, infectious laugh. He is missed every day, and will continue to be missed indefinitely.

Join us for a substance free day and enjoy the following activities...

  • ​A "build your own boat" relay race: groups of 4 people can sign up to test their ingenuity and boat racing skills at Darien’s beautiful Weed Beach. In the months leading up to event, teams will also compete to see who can raise the most money for Shatterproof
  • 'Tramps Like Us', the premier Bruce Springsteen Tribute band, will perform at the beach following the boat race
  • Throughout the day we will have lawn/beach games, dunk tanks, food trucks, and more!

By engaging in some of the activities that Mike enjoyed, we honor his memory. By participating in our event, you will help increase awareness and funding for the prevention, treatment, and recovery of this disease. Addiction needs to be battled with empathy and love. Michael was full of both.
