BENEFITING: MEDALS4METTLE INCORPORATED
Medal4Mettle's (M4M) mission is to celebrate and reward the individual and collective courage of all human beings by facilitating the gifting of marathon, half marathon, and triathlon finishers’ medals from runners to children and adults dealing with chronic or debilitating illnesses and have demonstrated similar mettle, or courage in bravely facing these challenges. Then the M4M nationwide network of physicians and volunteers awards these medals to those who might not be able to run a race, but are in a race of their own to continue to live their life.
M4M is a different kind of charity that does not seek to compete with other charities for valuable dollars. It is our mission to work with established charitable organizations to increase exposure and expand education by providing runners with a simple way to gift their medals to others. Nearly every dollar donated goes directly to buy ribbons and pay minor expenses associated with our 501c3 public charity.
