The Live for 24 Foundation is dedicated to supporting youth community outreach and funding student scholarships in Tampa Bay.
Melissa was the first in her family to graduate from college. She excelled not only in academics but in athletics as well. As a student at The University of Tampa, she accomplished her dream of graduating from college and becoming a physician assistant. While she was one of UT’s most accomplished student-athletes, she will be remembered most for her generous heart, infectious smile and ability to make everyone feel loved.
Lynn was a happy, loving mother devoted to her children. Her altruistic nature also shined through in her work caring for children at Hempstead’s Family and Children’s Association in New York. Her giving and kind nature were prevalent in her life and her roles as a mother, friend, co-worker, sister, wife, and daughter.
Janel graduated from The University of Buffalo with a Business Administration degree. She worked as a secretary for a healthcare services company. Janel was a beacon of laughter and happiness to all around her. She is greatly missed.
Give light to a tragedy.

Nine of Melissa’s friends/teammates established the Live for 24 Foundation. They created a Melissa Vanderhall Memorial Fund Foundation through the Community Foundation of Tampa Bay to help provide student scholarships.
Mel lived life fearlessly. Through Live for 24, we will continue to live life for her.
