EVENT DATE May 04, 2014
We have surpassed our goal of $1,000! Thanks to all who have donated! Meg has such wonderful people in her life!
Meg's tree will be a Witch Hazel (Arnold Promise variety) and will be located on the East side of Swazey Chapel. Dedication will occur on Saturday, May 31st at 3:30pm.
On March 10th, 2014 I lost my DG sorority sister and Denison roommate, Meghan Kirkpatrick to cancer.
Those who knew Meg knew her as a bright and beautiful soul who's smile lit up every room. Meg loved nature and the outdoors, especially the beach and the sun. Before she passed, she told her family and friends that after she was gone we should look towards the sun and think of her, because that's where she was going to be.
I am currently training to compete in the UPMC Health Plan Pittsburgh Half Marathon on May 4th and will be dedicating my run to Meg. In addition, I am collecting donations to have a tree and small memorial planted on Denison's campus. The tree will be a colorful Ohio native, fitting her personality. Location TBA. There will also be a dedication ceremony over Reunion Weekend (May 30th - June 1st. Day and time TBA).
It will cost $1,000 for the tree, planting, plaque, and maintenance for life. Any donation, big or small, is greatly appreciated. The memorial will be a great place to sit, reflect, and look up at the sky knowing an angel is looking down upon us.
