BENEFITING: MEDALS4METTLE INCORPORATED
In 2005, Medals4Mettle was started as a result of marathoner runners who award their finisher’s medals to others who have demonstrated similar mettle, or courage. Certainly everyone cannot run a marathon, but people who are battling life-threatening illnesses and severe disabilities demonstrate mettle everyday. Marathon runners experience the cheers of support from total strangers as they run through the streets, and these same runners cheer the wheelchair competitors that they may pass on the course. Medals4Mettle celebrates our collective human courage, and our innate desire to reward and support each other as we all face life’s challenges.
