Cardiac Arrest During Boston Marathon

Meghan qualified for the USA Olympic Trials during the 2019 Boston Marathon running 2:44. She has been an athlete her entire life & run dozens of marathons.

During the 2021 Boston Marathon on 10/11/2021, at mile 8, she fell into cardiac arrest. Thankfully, CPR was performed within seconds by trained professionals who were running in the race. We are forever grateful for them.

Meghan's life was saved & she transferred to the hospital where her heart stabilized. She is staying at the hospital for several nights to undergo testing. Meghan is a mom of a 9 month old. She is away from her baby during this time 1000+ miles away from home.

We are asking for donations to support Meghan as she encounters unforeseen medical expenses during this time.
