THE STORY:

"After the NYC 2013 Marathon, I retired from long-distance running. At age 58, I thought that nothing could induce me to train for another marathon. I was wrong.

As CEO of the NYC Rescue Mission, America's first shelter for our homeless neighbors, I have been inspired by the courage and strength of our neighbors in need, fighting to take back control of their lives. Through Back on My Feet, I started running with homeless men and women—several from the NYC Rescue Mission—who are training for a spot in the NYC 2017 Marathon. I knew I had to run with them, and for them.

I'm running to raise funds and awareness for our struggling neighbors, and to help more men and women go from surviving to thriving. My goal is $3000, which will be shared evenly by BoMF and the Mission.  

I look forward to running 26.2 miles with some of my best friends, whose determination in overcoming unthinkable obstacles is inspiring. You investment in me is an investment in them."


From Back on My Feet:

"By choosing to fundraise for Back on My Feet NYC you are helping raise critical awareness and funds to make a difference in the lives of our members.  Back on My Feet helps individuals experiencing homelessness transform their lives through running.  While you're training, our BoMF NYC members will be training for the marathon alongside you.  And together, mile by mile, we can make a difference.

BoMF combats homelessness through the power of running, community support, and essential employment and housing resources."
