Two Steps Forward: A Dance to Heal the Soul – The Tayshana Chicken Murphy Foundation

11659400_1098695123503898_2592767647404169987_nBrooklyn, NY — The Tayshana Chicken Murphy Foundation hosted “Two Steps Forward: A Dance to Heal the Soul”, a community event that allows families from various communities to come together for a night of revelry and merriment. The event will also include a few testimonials and award presentations. The event took place on Saturday, April 16th during National Crime Victim’s Rights Week. Parents and relatives that lost family members due to senseless gun violence, we invited.

This event honored the men who Mr. Murphy collaborate with while achieving the mission of The Tayshana “Chicken” Murphy Foundation. Males who are standing despite the pain were HONOURED today.

The Tayshana “Chicken” Murphy Foundation was formed in honor and loving memory of Tayshana Dejenea “Chicken” Murphy. Tayshana was a high school basketball star and basketball playground legend who on the early morning of September 11th met her physical demise by two executioners. The reason for creating this foundation is to add on her legacy in which her spirit will live forever as well as serve at risk teens likely to be victims of violence.

Mr. Murphy felt that that getting his family and close friends involved would help him touch more lives in the community. With the help of family and friends the foundation is creating youth support programs and support other organizations who have similar programs to serve our young people in communities across New York City and eventually the Nation.

The Tayshana “Chicken” Murphy Foundation plans to create and support programs that cultivate and nurture the minds of at risk youth and teach them the skills to promote peace throughout society.
