On Friday morning, June 3, 2016 family, friends, and supporters all witnessed Virginia Governor Terry McAuliffe sign a bill creating a special license plate in memory of Hanover County mother and runner Meg Cross Menzies.
A drunk driver killed Meg two years ago while she was on a training run for the Boston Marathon. Her husband Scott was running with her.
Organizers spent the early part of the year gathering the necessary pre-orders for the special plates, with Frank Engler designing the plates, which feature a silhouette of Meg Menzies and the Richmond skyline. Both houses of the General Assembly passed the bill unanimously during their session this year.
At the signing, Meg's mother Pam Cross shared her thoughts on the lasting tribute to her late daughter. "It means an awful lot to be able to share Meg's story with the Commonwealth of Virginia," Cross said at Friday's signing. "People will know about her life. People will be aware of drunk driving, that it's wrong to get behind the wheel of a car and drive when you've been drinking, whether it's a little or a lot, you just don't know."
