Medals4Mettle (M4M) is a non-profit organization that facilitates the gifting of marathon, half marathon, and triathlon finishers’ medals. Runners from around Iowa, and the world, give their hard earned medals to Medals4Mettle. The organizations volunteers then award 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. If you have some medals that you would like to donate, they can be dropped off at Fitness Sports in Windsor Heights, The Runner's Flat in Cedar Falls, or mailed to Medals4Mettle, 1640 SE Florence Dr., Waukee, IA, 50263.  "Like", email, or visit to help!
