Hello Family & Friends,

My name is Candace Murray, best friend of Janel Simpson, Melissa Vanderhall and "daughter" of Lynn Vanderhall.

On August, 12, 2017, lives were changed forever following the loss of our three Angels due to a senseless and inexplainable act of violence. If you knew Janel, Melissa or Lynn aka Mrs. V, you are extremely lucky. If you knew all three, consider yourself BLESSED! They were loving and generous women who always encouraged those who crossed their paths, loved without limits, and lived the days of their life with purpose! 

Last year, I made it my business to leave the country in attempt to escape the hurt and pain that would come with the anniversary of their departure. This year, instead of running, it's been put in my heart to celebrate their lives, together as a community. The Simpson & Vanderhall Memorial 5K Run Fundraiser is being created to provide an atmosphere where we can celebrate Janel, Melissa and Mrs. V's lives in a positive way and to raise funds for scholarship opportunities in their name. 

Please donate and SHARE SHARE SHARE this link to help us raise the money WE KNOW WE CAN, to help create an opportunity to change someone's life. 

The Simpson & Vanderhall Memorial 5K Run will be held at Uniondale High School, 933 Goodrich St, Uniondale NY on August 11, 2019 at 11 am. <3
