Marathoners Give Back by Donating Medals

ACTivism: Medals4Mettle

Finishing a marathon takes strength, stamina, and bravery — in other words, mettle. But mettle is not just a term applied to able-bodied runners; it also applies to folks dealing with life-threatening diseases or severe disabilities. Medals4Mettle is a non-profit organization created to honor those people who must endure personal marathons daily.

Medals4Mettle collects medals from marathon finishers and donates them to people battling diseases. Medals4Mettle celebrates our collective human courage, and our innate desire to reward and support each other as we face life’s challenges.

If you're interested in donating a medal you've received, visit their website to locate the chapter nearest you. This could be just the motivation you need to cross that finish line in your next race.

I'm sending several of my medals there ! I'm keeping a couple (my first marathon, a couple HIMs) but I can stand to part with the rest for this worthy cause :)

I've heard the kids who receive these medals really like the disney marathon and 1/2 marathon. Who wouldn't want to wear a Micky Mouse medal around your neck?
