Last updated 3 years ago

Organization to award athlete-donated medals to patients with chronic illnesses

  • WHAT:
    Medals4Mettle is a non-profit organization that facilitates the gifting of marathon, half marathon, and triathlon finishers’ medals from runners to children with chronic or debilitating illnesses that have demonstrated similar mettle, or courage in bravely facing the challenges they face with their illness. These children might not be able to run a race, but are in a race of their own to live their life. Even though the medal might not be able to cure a disease, it can help lift a child’s spirit. 
  • WHO:
    Sunrise Children’s Hospital Pediatric Patients
  • WHEN:
    Friday, July 27, 2012 at 1 p.m.
  • WHERE:
    Sunrise Children’s Hospital Main Lobby and 4th Floor
    3186 South Maryland Parkway
    Las Vegas, NV 89109
    With the start of the summer 2012 Olympics in London quickly approaching, the children receiving these medals will be made to feel as if they are a member of the Olympic team.
