In 2006, 16-year-old Emily Keyes was killed by a gunman who held her and six other girls hostage inside Platte Canyon High School. That year, and every year since, her friends and family hold a motorcycle rally to honor her memory, known as Emily’s Parade.
Students, teachers, family and friends all gather in the parking lot of Columbine High School to see the motorcycles off. The riders travel from Columbine to Platte Canyon High School to raise awareness about school shootings and gun violence.
The event also raises money for the I Love U Guys Foundation, which focuses on promoting school safety and helping schools prevent mass shootings. “I Love U Guys” was the last text Emily sent to her family before she was killed.
This year’s ride attracted more than 2000 riders, the highest turnout to date. The event also raised thousands for the I Love U Guys Foundation.
Colorado motorcyclists have a long history of supporting worthy causes through rallies and fundraisers. Metier Law Firm is a strong supporter of Emily’s Parade and events like it. Our firm even acted as a corporate sponsor for Emily’s Parade in 2012.
