It has been a very intense couple weeks: long-distance races, our finish lines and running community forever changed and an outpouring of love and support for the #BostonStrong Run movement. When I saw a couple tweets from friends about the new Saucony #BostonStrong Lace Medallion, it was an easy choice to place my order when I got home.

Description from Saucony:

In an effort to inspire runners to honor and support the people most affected by the tragic events that occurred in Boston on April 15, Saucony has created the #BostonStrong Lace Medallion to be offered as a fundraiser for The One Fund Boston. The two-sided medallion features the viral hashtag and unity motto #BostonStrong on one side and a custom-designed, laced-up heart icon on the other. For every pair of medallions purchased, Saucony will donate 100% of sales to The One Fund Boston, established by Massachusetts Governor Deval Patrick and Boston Mayor Thomas M. Menino to help the victims of the Boston Marathon bombings.


I ordered two pairs for myself. I wanted to order more, but I’m waiting to see if they come out with some additional colors. Knowing the amazing color-ways for Saucony products, I’m hoping it happens. Either way, I’ve got two pairs of Saucony shoes that these will look perfect on.

They are $5 each and shipping was free. These are a pre-sale, so they won’t be ready for a month.

These would be pretty cool with a custom city… #BostonStrongSF, #BostonStrongNYC, #BostonStrongParis

I was not compensated or asked to do this post. I saw it, liked it and wanted to share it. #BostonStrong

What do you think?

Are these a cool and different way to raise money and show support?
