<p>Over the years I've accumulated a lot of medals and various running hardward.   Problem is I don't have anywhere to put them.  The medals are all in a bag, the other hardware piled into a drawer.  I've contemplated saving only my initial marathon medal and maybe one other and simply throwing the others out as they have no significance that I can come up with.  I can't wear them, no one else is really interested in them except maybe other runners in passing.</p>

<p>I had a running friend who once told me she gave her medals to her nieces and nephews after each race.  I kind of wish I had done that. </p>

<p>What else do you do with your race medals after you've accumulated more than one or two?</p>

<p class="Paragraph" style="text-align:left;"><span class="Paragraph"><span style="font-family:verdana;"><span style="font-size:xx-small;">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 finisher’s medals from marathoners to people who have demonstrated similar mettle, or courage. The recipients can be any age and might have exhibited such mettle by dealing with disease, handicaps or any similar challenge. Marathon runners around the world, and others who have won medals, give their medals to Medals4Mettle. Then our nationwide network of physicians and others award these medals to those who might not be able to run a marathon, but are in their own marathon to continue to live their life. As marathoners run through the streets, large crowds cheer the runners for their effort. Medals4Mettle lets these runners, healthy enough to compete in such an event, to return the cheers to those who have supported them.</span></span></span></p>
