TAYLOR CEO Goes Over The Edge for Urban Scouting in the City of Rochester

Jim Taylor Repels 309ft During the 4th Annual “21 Stories For Scouts”

As the fearless leader and CEO of Taylor – The Builders, a leading regional general contractor, Jim Taylor has a rich history and vast portfolio of delivering superior buildings for clients from the ground – up. His most recent task took him in the opposite direction…down! As part of the 4th Annual “21 Stories For Scouts” rappelling event on May 17th, Jim Taylor accepted the challenge to defy gravity by rappelling 21 stories, or 309 feet, down the First Federal Plaza in downtown Rochester to support the Urban Scouting program of the Seneca Waterways Council.

“This event is such a fun and exciting way to build awareness for the Urban Scouting program in Rochester,” says Taylor CEO Jim Taylor. “I’m particularly grateful for Taylor’s many friends and associates who stepped forward to help us raise almost $5000 for this terrific local organization.”

More than 90 local business leaders and scout supporters took advantage of this unique fundraising event. Through company contributions and online donations, 100% of monies raised went directly to support Urban Scouting programs. Including more than 40 after-school programs run in the city of Rochester, and three summer camps, contributions will offer more than 12,000 urban youth who desperately want and need Scouting the opportunity to fully participate.
