Why I Ride for Merritt…



Why I Ride for Merritt by Lisa Taylor

I’m riding for Merritt’s Way for love and remembrance. I am riding because I love the Levitan family. Merritt’s death was transformational. She was an incredible spirit that I don’t want to ever forget. I also don’t want to ever forget how fragile life is and that it is therefore necessary to be present with those we love. I ride for TextLess Live More to educate and remind others that the reason Merritt is not physically present with us is because someone chose to not be present resulting in tragic consequences.
