As the Colorado Springs community continues to honor the life of a 21-year old man who was killed in a hit and run accident, a scholarship fund is being set up for those who want to follow in his footsteps.

Taylor White was a former Pine Creek student and a Colorado Springs native. Services were held to celebrate the life he lead at the New Life Church Sunday, where people were encouraged to dress down and silly, as his family said that is what he would’ve wanted.

Among those honoring his life, a memorial was also held at the CrossFit Pandora’s Box in Colorado Springs Sunday. White was an active member of the fitness community, as a CrossFit instructor, where a scholarship fund has been set up for those who want to do the same.

"When he did football practice, wrestling practice, and all these other things that he was driving he would still get up early and come and train and come on the weekends and we were such an important part of his life and he was also an important part of our life," said Gym Owner Tamara Gray. 

There is a GoFundMe page set up to get the scholarship fund started, for more information, click here

The search for the hit-and-run driver is still ongoing as this is an active criminal investigation.
