Meagan Margerum-Leys was an amazing kid, you would have liked her. Healthy for nearly all of her life, she contracted an inoperable malignant brain tumor in 2003. She battled it for 18 months, passing away in June of 2004. Meagan was passionate about language: She was an accomplished writer and a voracious reader. Her life’s final project was to start a book collection to be housed in a small reading room at her school. She interviewed her teachers regarding books that they wanted to have on hand. After her death, her family and friends donated bookshelves, furniture, a computer, and books. In 2005, in honor of her 16th birthday, the reading room was dedicated.

Miles for Meagan seeks to raise $10,000 for the purpose of enhancing the reading areas and experiences for students at the Rudolf Steiner School of Ann Arbor. The race field will be limited to 100 individuals at $100 each. All costs for putting on the race will be raised through donations in kind and sponsorships. All entry fees will go to the school.
