The Hugh Gerlach 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 The Hugh Gerlach 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 The Hugh Gerlach Determination Award.  This award is announced during the awards ceremony at the annual Martinsville Half Marathon, 5K & Relay. 

Do you have an incredible story to share or do you know someone that has overcome tremendous obstacles? We want to hear the stories of determination and inspiration. We want to hear about your challenges that you have had overcome to be the person you are today.
