          This event is a neon night run/walk on Glenna Goodacre Blvd, at the scene

Applicants for educational scholarships should be willing to sign a commitment to never drive under the influence of alcohol or drugs, to prevent anyone else of doing so, and to participate in student or community organizations working to prevent this crime.  On-Line scholarship applications, applicant criteria and instructions will be posted on this website when they become available in Summer of 2018. Until then, you may email our team at info@meaganroughmemorial.org.

Events and organizations have developed from the positive impact of the beautiful life that Meagan worked so hard for.

Many have made great efforts to become her voice, who would want society to prevent this from happening to you and

those you love, and to instill the giving spirit she displayed. The goal of all events are to not only remind everyone of the

catastrophic dangers of driving intoxicated, but for all to look toward the "Happy Ending", where making a plan and following

through with it can truly provide us all with the GOOD way the story can end.
