Taylor, McGuire and CJS Going Over The Edge for Urban Scouting in Rochester

Jim Taylor, Brook Lefler, Megan Mazurkiewicz, Robert Pyszczynski III, and Scott Selin Will Rappel During the 9th Annual “21 Stories For Scouts” Event

As part of the 9th Annual Seneca Waterways Council “21 Stories For Scouts” rappelling event on May 18th, Jim Taylor, Brook Lefler, Megan Mazurkiewicz, Robert Pyszczynski III, and Scott Selin will accept the challenge to defy gravity by rappelling around 21 stories down the historic KODAK Tower in downtown Rochester to support the Seneca Waterways Council Urban Scouting program.

“This event is always such a fun and exciting way to build awareness for the Urban Scouting program in Rochester, and bringing a landmark of the Rochester Skyline, and an icon in the world of film photography into the mix only adds to the excitement,” says TAYLOR CEO Jim Taylor. “I’m particularly grateful for TAYLOR’s many friends and associates who are stepping forward to help us fundraise for this terrific local organization, and the often overlooked opportunities it provides.”

“As an Eagle Scout and avid supporter of the Boy Scouts of America, my involvement in this one-of-a-kind fundraiser was long overdue,” says CJS Architects Designer/Project Manager, Scott Selin. “Having learned firsthand the skills, values, and friendships that Scouting develops, I am honored to participate in an event allowing urban youth the opportunity to fully participate and appreciate the same valuable experiences as I.”

TAYLOR CEO Jim Taylor, who rappelled consecutive years from 2013-2014, will be participating for the third time, but his first at the new location. He will be joined on the Rochester skyline by current TAYLOR Superintendent, Brook Lefler, and current RIT Co-op Student, Megan Mazurkiewicz. In addition, design build partners Robert E. Pyszczynski III, Vice President of Construction at McGuire Development Company, and Scott Selin, Designer/Project Manager at CJS Architects, will join the team for this exhilarating fundraising adventure.

In addition to TEAM TAYLOR, more than 90 local business leaders and scout supporters will take advantage of this unique fundraising event. Donations go directly toward underwriting outreach programs for urban youth in the City of Rochester, including over 40 after-school programs and summer camp experiences. The Seneca Waterways Council, Boy Scouts of America serves nearly 11,000 young people each year with leadership and character development programs that change lives and help prepare young people for life.
