About Move for Medals
Hello and welcome to Move for Medals! This is a virtual challenge and fundraising community with a difference - it's not just about keeping active and achieving your goals, it's also about supporting great causes around the country.
I set up Move for Medals after seeing another company profiting from a Remembrance Sunday-themed medal, with none of the proceeds donated to any charities that work with Armed Forces personnel.
With Move for Medals, I pledged that every medal sold will directly benefit good causes because now, more than ever, we need to support each other.
