Donate Your Old Shoes: Save your shoes and bring them to our races! We are a donation site for Soles4Souls again this year! And, our race committee has agreed to donate $1 for every pair you bring to help with shipping costs. They take all shoes - work shoes, high heels, running shoes, anything! Read more about this amazing organization’s goal to collect 11 million pairs in 2011.


Donate Your Old Race Medals: Medals4Mettle (M4M) is a non-profit organization that facilitates the gifting of marathon, half marathon, and triathlon finishers’ medals.  Runners from around the world give their hard earned medals to Medals4Mettle.  A network of physicians and volunteers then awards 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 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 would like to donated medals to Medals4mettle you may bring them with you to the M4M table at the expo or to the M4M tent on race day. For more information about Medals4Mettle check out www.medals4mettle.org.
