Remembering Ally

May 10, 2017 Community No Comments

Nearly 400 people came out May 7 and raised $11,000 for a scholarship in memory of the late Ally Doyle, who lost her life in a tragic accident just over a year ago.

As participants gathered at the Farmington River Trail in Collinsville, pink was everywhere – in ribbons tied to the trestle bridge along the trail, in a balloon arch where walkers originated and on the backs of many participants who pre-registered for an event T-shirt. It was the Canton girl’s favorite color and, on Sunday, her friends also passed out pink flowers that many participants threw into the river in remembrance of the young seventh-grader who was an outstanding scholar, gymnast, musician, daughter, sister and friend.

“This is very overwhelming; on behalf of my family I want to thank every one of you who came out and donated and contributed to Ally’s fun walk,” said the girl’s mother, Angie. “We created the scholarship in hopes to have another Canton student carry out Ally’s hopes and dreams of academic success in college. From the bottom of my heart I just want to thank everyone. I want this to be a day to celebrate and honor Ally’s life.”
