This year the foundation and JAX Impact gathered at the intersection of Collegiate Way and Alafaya Trail to have a ceremony that honored victims of road traffic fatalities. Multiple families from across the state of Florida came out to hear the proclamations issued by Orange County Mayor Theresa Jacobs and Jacksonville Mayor Lenny Curry, and also participate in a candlelight vigil to honor their loved ones.
