GoFundMe Supports Family After Teen Cyclist is Hit, Killed

GoFundMe Supports Family After Teen Cyclist is Hit, Killed

Mason Taylor lost his life earlier this summer after being hit while riding his bike.

The 15-year-old Sahuarita teen died on Thursday, July 5, in a local hospital, two days after being struck near Old Nogales Highway and Quail Crossing Boulevard. The driver remained at the scene and authorities maintain it was an accident. No charges have been filed.

Now, Mason’s heartbroken family and friends are left to pick up the pieces after their tragic loss. A GoFundMe was made to raise money for his family, and the fundraiser’s description says Mason, a student at Walden Grove High School, was loved by many: He had a joy and gift for music, and he touched so many lives.  He was a normal kid who loved playing video games until all hours of the night and he loved his guitar. Bandmates and their parents remember him as the “nice kid who liked helping others.” Mason left this life helping others, he was a true hero!

Matt and Chenoa have lived their lives giving to others, not taking. No parent is prepared emotionally to outlive their precious child. Knowing this, neighbors in the community are setting up this account in honor of Mason and his passions of music, helping others, making sure everyone had a friend, light and love.  All money will be deposited directly into their checking account and used at their discretion. 

Mason was an organ donor who saved seven lives.


The fundraiser is very close to reaching its $15,000 goal. For more information and to make a difference, please visit the official GoFundMe page HERE.
