Pushed to Extremes: Meredith Dolhare, BS’96, Uses the Power of Sports to Help the Homeless

Several years after graduating in 1996, Meredith Dolhare found a new passion: running.

In 2013 she finished third in the Badwater Ultramarathon—a 135-mile race in 120-plus-degree heat that features a grueling climb from California’s Death Valley (279 feet below sea level) to the trailhead of Mount Whitney (8,360 feet).
