M4M is an official charity of The Bank of America Chicago Marathon!!

Working with Medals4Mettle in Chicago has been such a joy and complete labor of love.  Finding recipients is a constant struggle (as I receive SO many medals from amazing athletes) but every single medal presentation makes the calls and solicitations worth it! 

I am so excited to make the following announcement!

Medals4Mettle is now an official charity of the 2014 Bank of America Chicago Marathon!   We are pleased to offer guaranteed spots through our fundraising program.  Your fundraising dollars help M4M facilitate medal presentations.

Our fundraising minimum of $1,200 includes race entry, a Chicago-based training program through Run for Change (with a virtual option for those who aren't local), a M4M tech shirt, Crush Multisport Membership for group cross-training options and more!

There is a lot of work ahead but sooo excited to make this happen.  


  1. So cool!!! If all goes well my plan is to run the marathon for JDRF again next year since it'll be the five year anniversary of her passing. In 2011 I raised $6,000 and I think I would make my goal $10,000!

  2. $10K... amazing! i am really excited to see you make your comeback!

  3. Bookmarking for future reference. I'm entering in the lottery but never get lucky in those..

  4. haha.. lotteries are so tough. would love to have your run with us! Let me know!!
