You have seen me post once or twice about volunteering with Medals4Mettle, where we have visited local children's hospitals to distribute half and full marathon medals to hospitalized children. Volunteering for the medal distributions has been a rewarding experience and the reactions from hospital staff, parents, and the medal recipients is well worth the hour or two you take to volunteer. Our St. Louis Coordinator is searching for her replacement so if you live in the St. Louis area, scroll down. If you don't but are interesting in finding your closest chapter, click here.
Mary Ruth Casey is the current St. Louis Coordinator. The amount of time she spends per month varies and is totally flexible. She also currently has quite a few donated medals and ribbons for the new coordinator to start off with. She has already developed relationships with several of our local hospitals, so she will have the contact information ready for her replacement.

If you are interested in the St. Louis Coordinator opening, contact Mary Ruth Casey at 636-524-5038 or firstname.lastname@example.org for more details. If I wasn't working so much and in the midst of planning a destination wedding, I would have snagged this great opportunity already!
