Emily’s Parade 2012
Injury Lawyers in Colorado and Nationwide
As avid motorcycle riders ourselves, Tom Metier and the injury attorneys at Metier Law Firm never pass up an opportunity to take part in a scenic ride especially when it means we also get to raise money for a great cause. Emily’s Parade is in annual fundraising event for the “I Love U Guys” Foundation to celebrate the life of Emily Keyes and help victims of tragic injuries. The Law Tigers acted as a corporate sponsor for the 2012 Emily’s Parade. Our firm is a proud member of the Law Tigers, and is dedicated to protecting the rights of those hurt by the negligence of another in a motorcycle accident or after devastating injuries. Contact our injury lawyers today for more information about our work on behalf of injury victims.
This is our annual event. It’s Emily’s parade and it’s absolutely a magical day. We have bikers from across the state who gather here in memory of Emily, my daughter, and other victims of violence in our schools. The foundations have developed a program, the Standard Response Protocol, that enables students, staff, and first responders to share a common vocabulary in a crisis. Without this event, that wouldn’t be possible. We provide that program free of charge to public k-12 schools, not just here in Colorado, but across the country.

Tom Metier: Each of these balloons represent someone who has lost their life to school violence. We’re going to release the balloons, play a song that we’ve come to love at Columbine High School that means so much to us. (Somewhere Over the Rainbow plays).
