On September 12, 2009 Amanda McLaughlin was struck & killed by a hit and run driver on Northgate Blvd. The March 4 Amanda is an event created to honor Amanda and bring people together to celebrate a life taken too soon! It’s a time to join together and help with our efforts to find answers for her still unsolved case by passing out flyers, asking for any information or leads, and also to help collect signatures. We need the help of the community to show both the city of Fort Wayne and Canterbury Apartments that YES we want and need change to make Northgate Blvd safer for all.
We are asking and inviting everyone to come out and be involved with the March 4 Amanda. Come celebrate the life of an amazing daughter, sibling, friend, employee and college student who touched the lives of so many! Join us in our efforts to have changes made so that this tragedy doesn’t happen again.
