On November 5th, I will be running the New York City Marathon to raise money for Back on My Feet. On Wednesday mornings, I wake up at 5am to run with a group of men in Harlem that face homelessness and often addiction. BoMF uses a unique running-based model that demonstrates that if you first restore confidence, strength and self-esteem, individuals are better equipped to tackle the road ahead and move toward jobs, homes and new lives. For all in need, BoMF aims to provide: practical training and employment resources for achieving independence; an environment that promotes accountability; and a community that offers compassion and hope.
This charity is very close to my heart. During difficult times in my life, I have been blessed to have had family and friends by my side. My involvement with BoMF has been my way of giving back for all the support I've received.
