UPDATED: Taylor Morris fundraiser Memorial Day at Lost Island

Posted:
WATERLOO (KWWL) -

‘Putt For Taylor' Memorial Day and help raise money for severely injured U.S. Sailor, Taylor Morris, of Cedar Falls.

This Memorial Day, Monday, May 28, the Lost Island Waterpark http://www.thelostisland.com/ will hold a Taylor Morris fundraiser, at its putt-putt golf course, Lost Island Golf and Go Karts.

For every round of golf played on Memorial Day, Lost Island will donate the entire cost of $ 6.75 to the Taylor Morris Fund, recently established at Veridian Credit Union.

The organizer knows of Taylor through mutual friends, and felt that if anyone has the opportunity and ability to help another person, they should take that opportunity.

Taylor is an explosive ordinance disposal expert in the U. S. Navy. He was severely injured, May 3, when he stepped on an improvised explosive device on a mission in Afghanistan.

In the explosion, Taylor lost his right hand, his left arm at the elbow and parts of both legs. He is currently recovering at Walter Reed U.S. Army Medical Center in Bethesda, Maryland. At some point in his recovery, Taylor will be fitted with prosthetic limbs.

Make plans to play some putt-putt golf Monday at Lost Island Waterpark Golf and Go Karts and help out Taylor Morris in his long recovery.
