    Taylor’s Gift Foundation began after 13 year-old Taylor Storch’s tragic skiing accident in 2010. Following this devastation, her parents made the choice to donate Taylor’s organs, in turn saving lives and giving the family a sense of hope. Their gift helped five people in a life changing way and laid the way for the creation of a foundation. Originally created to raise awareness of the need for organ donation registration, the foundation now strives to serve three pillars: Regift Life, Renew Health and Restore Families.



    Everson Walls

    Signed by the Dallas Cowboys as an undrafted free agent, Everson earned NFL All Rookie team honors. During his 9 year tenure with the Cowboys, he was a three time All-Pro and earned four trips to the Pro Bowl. He was also the youngest player selected to the Dallas Cowboy Silver Anniversary team. In 1990 Walls joined the New York Giants and was instrumental in their Super Bowl XXV victory in 1991. In December of 2006, Everson made a decision to donate a kidney to former teammate and friend Ron Springs.


    Danieal Manning

    Was drafted by the Chicago Bears in the 2006 NFL draft from Abilene Christian University. Midway through the 2008 NFL season, Manning took over duties as the team's kick returner and quickly made an impression returning a kickoff 83 yards for a touchdown, making it the first regular season opening kickoff returned for a touchdown for the Bears since 1972. He led the league in return average and number of 30+-yard returns, despite only starting half the season. The following year he moved into the team’s starting lineup. A native of Corsicana Texas, Manning was thrilled to return to his home state as one of the newest members of the Houston Texans backfield.


    Mike Renfro

    Was selected by the Houston Oiilers in the fourth round of the 1978 NFL Draft. A 6'0", 186-lb. wide-receiver from Texas Christian University, Renfro played in 10 National Football League seasons for the Oilers and Dallas Cowboys from 1978 to 1987. Late in the 3rd quarter, Renfro appeared to make a touchdown catch for the Houston Oilers to tie the 1979 AFC Championships game against the Pittsburgh Steelers, officials catch ruled it incomplete and the Steelers would go on to win 27-13. Replays clearly show that Renfro did get both feet inbounds with control of the football but unfortunately for the Oilers instant replay did not exist at that time.
