Dana Hills XC runner and soccer player, 14 year old Megan Nicole Myers, collapsed at the 2 mile mark of a 3 mile race against Capistrano Valley High School — an hour later, she was pronounced dead at Mission Hospital.Â An autopsy was performed, but proved inconclusive, so the death remains a mystery.
Over 800 mourners filled Aliso Viejo’s Coast Hill’s Community Church to remember Megan.Â A video tribute, showing her as a toddler playing in the snow, drew sobs from the crowd — it ended with a note from the girl’s grieving father. “I am running through life,” he’d written to her, “so I can walk with you in heaven.”
The family requests contributions to a scholarship for her XC team — send donations to the following:
