Elster Determination Award

"An award for people who overcome."  The Martinsville-Henry County Family YMCA is proud to partner with the Elster Foundation to offer the Elster Determination Award!  This award is the brain child of Doug Goldstein who was diagnosed with colon cancer in 2009 and has undergone numerous surgeries and procedures.  Doug, not satisfied with just surviving cancer, was determined to do what he loves... running.

Share your story and inspire others.  Each year, Miles in Martinsville will recognize all nominees and pick one overall winner for the Elster Determination Award.  We want to hear your story of determination and the challenges you have overcome to be the person you are today.  Inspire others -- share your experience.  E-mail your story to:
