WORLD DAY OF REMEMBRANCE 2023
In recognition of 2023’s World Day of Remembrance for Road Traffic Victims, Melissa Wandall, Ambassador for Target Zero Florida & President NCSR, partnered with Keith Robbins, District Safety Administrator, FDOT District 1, Law Enforcement, and the Community at Large to host a World Day of Remembrance event on Friday, November 17, 2023, at the SE Corner of State Road 70 at Tara Boulevard.
This location was selected, as 2023 marked the 20th year since Melissa’s husband, Mark Wandall, died at this intersection due to the carelessness of a red-light runner. Melissa’s brother, Philip Wolfe, was also seriously injured in this same crash and he remains emotionally and physically debilitated today. Sheriff Wells and Corporal Brunner spoke at the event and made an impactful statement in support of Target Zero Florida and WDoR. Charles Clapsaddle with Manatee Educational Television provided all audio and video equipment and documented the event, ensuring it will be watched in the days ahead so Floridians can continually REMEMBER, SUPPORT, and ACT in support of road traffic victims.
