BENEFITING: MEDALS4METTLE INCORPORATED
ORGANIZER: MEDALS4METTLE INCORPORATED
EVENT: Marine Corps Marathon 2013
Medals4Mettle is a non-profit organization started in 2005 by marathon runners that facilitates the gifting of marathon, half marathon, and triathlon finishers’ medals. Runners from around the world give their hard earned medals to Medals4Mettle. Our worldwide network of physicians and volunteers then awards these medals attached to a Medals4Mettle ribbon to children and adults fighting debilitating illnesses who might not be able to run a race, but are in a race of their own just to continue to live their life. It is in honor of this mettle and courage in bravely facing these challenges that they are awarded a medal.
Help me raise money for a charity that lifts spirits of people, mostly kids, that are fighting for their lives against deadly diseases while I run the Marine Corps Marathon on Oct 27!
