Back on My Feet is a national non-profit with local chapters in major cities around the US, including San Francisco. They seek to give dignity to the homeless through a unique running-based model. Homeless members, recruited from local shelters, commit to running 3 days per week at 5:45 am with a community of volunteers and other members. Subsequently, they enter into job training and housing assistance programs. Serving on the inaugural advisory board of the San Francisco chapter of Back on My Feet has given me new perspective on the homeless, and I've seen how a community that bridges the socio-economic divide can change people's lives. When young tech professionals and the homeless run together, personal transformation happens--one mile at a time. Join me in raising money for Back on My Feet San Francisco as I run the New York City Marathon! Will you consider donating a $1, $2, $4, or $10 per marathon mile ($26, $52, $104, or $260) ?
