LOMA LINDA (CBS) — A local woman is hoping people across the Southland will donate their race medals to children fighting deadly diseases.

Candace Ransom is trying to carry on her son Lucas’ memory. Lucas died in Oct. 2010 when a shark attacked him while he was bodyboarding near Santa Barbara. Just before his death, Lucas donated one his race medals to a child at a local children’s hospital.

Ransom has started a charity called “Medals for Courage.” Every medal donated will be given to a child at Loma Linda University Children’s Hospital . . . many of them battling cancer.

Candace will be donating the medal she wins next weekend at the Santa Barbara International Half Marathon.

Recent marathon, half marathon and triathlon medals in good condition can be donated.

The deadline for donations is Nov. 20.
