Bling for Bravery is a program developed through the Snowdrop Foundation to celebrate and reward the bravery of the pediatric cancer patients at Texas Children’s Cancer Hospital in Houston, TX. The mission is to distribute finisher’s medals from races from Half Marathons through Ultra Marathons including Triathlons to the children at the hospital to recognize and celebrate their bravery in dealing with cancer. The common thread of dedication and bravery of training for long distance races and triathlons is mirrored by the patients at the hospital. If you would like to donate a medal, please complete the form. This will provide us with some information on the race that the medal is from and the donor that can be shared with the recipient.
If you are in the Houston surrounding areas and would like to donate medals – we have donation barrels at all 5 Fleet Feet Sports of Greater Houston stores and at FINISH LINE SPORTS and Texas Running Company – Sugar Land. Or they can be mailed to: Lawrence A. DeSpain 4407 Lakeshore Forest Drive Missouri City, TX 77459-4488 Cell: 713-823-0703 email: firstname.lastname@example.org
Note: Please remove the ribbon and wrap the medal in bubble wrap or similar protective material. This will reduce your postage costs and protect the medal from the postage machines. The ribbon will be replaced with a new ribbon by the Snowdrop Foundation prior to presenting it to the recipient.
