Medals 4 Mettle Dayton Children’s June 6th 6pm

If you are interested in joining Up and Running with the donation of medals contact us via email at nickie@upandrunningindayton.com.  Our next visit to Dayton Children’s Hospital will be on June 6th at 6pm.

Medals4Mettle (M4M) is a non-profit organization founded in Indianapolis, Indiana, in 2005. Its mission is to celebrate and reward the individual and collective courage of all human beings by facilitating the gifting of marathon, 1/2 marathon, and triathlon finisher’s medals from people who have demonstrated similar mettle or courage. Certainly everyone cannot run a marathon or compete in a triathlon, but people who are battling life-threatening illnesses and severe disabilities demonstrate mettle everyday. The recipients can be any age and might have exhibited such mettle by dealing with disease, handicaps or any similar challenge. Athletes around the world who have won medals, give their medals to Medals4Mettle. Then the nationwide network of physicians and local M4M Chapters award these medals to those who might not be able to run a marathon or compete in triathlon, but are in their own marathon to continue to live their life. As marathoners and triathletes run through the streets, large crowds cheer the runners for their effort, and these same runners cheer the wheelchair competitors that they may pass on the course. Medals4Mettle lets these runners/triathletes, healthy enough to compete in such an event, to return the cheers to those who have supported them. Medals4Mettle celebrates our collective human courage and our innate desire to reward and support each other as we all face life’s challenges.

Up and Running is proud to be a local Medals4Mettle chapter. We partner with Dayton Children’s Hospital to donate your medals. Stop by Up and Running and donate your marathon, 1/2 marathon or triathlon medal with a personalized message for the recipient. We will share your story surrounding what the medal means to you with the child recipient.
