Earlier this summer I was contacted by a local chamber of commerce to engrave some "medals" for a marathon fundraiser they were hosting. The race takes place on the Wabash Trace and they were looking for some wood medals to go along with the nature theme of the race.
Here is a photo of part of the race trail...isn't it beautiful!
Each year the race gets bigger and bigger and I was so happy to be asked to be a part of it this year! I engraved the marathon's logo on the front and drilled holes in each wooden log slice so they could be worn like regular medals. Yikes...this required power tools!
And here are some of the runners wearing their medals :)
I've already gotten so many awesome complements from some of the volunteers and runners from the day. It's been fun seeing everyone's photos on Facebook of them with their medals!
This was a great event to be a part of and I was honored that they asked me to make their medals!
