Jane M. Heggie was a gifted athlete, a popular and inspirational coach, and a charismatic person that inspired many to pursue sports and achieve their personal best.She was a championship tennis player and golfer with a single digit handicap. She coached field hockey and basketball at Milton Academy for many years. She had a reputation for coaching teams that knew how to work together and succeed.
Jane passed away in 2006, but her memory lives on in the Run For Jane, started by her son-in-law, Vaughn Littlejohn. Vaughn ran the Boston Marathon several times in Jane’s memory and raised money for Medicines For Humanity, the non-profit that saves the lives of the world’s most vulnerable children in places where child mortality is highest. This year, Team MFH is proud to welcome the Run For Jane as an “official” team member. Her indomitable spirit will be with our runners as they make their way from Hopkinton to Copley Square. Please join us in remembering Jane through your support.
