Since 2018, Lex Running Shop has sponsored the annual Boys Home Harvest Hustle, providing much-appreciated prizes to the winners of each race in each age category. Boys Home is grateful for their continuing support.
This year, Boys Home was able to give back by donating unused race medals to Lex Running Shop.
Through a partnership with the organization Medals4Mettle, race medals are collected, given a new lanyard, and awarded to children and adults for the mettle and courage they demonstrate battling cancer, chronic illness, trauma and other life challenges.
Boys Home is grateful to be able to partner with Lex Running Shop to spread kindness and compassion to those running an even more difficult race.
