I began volunteering with Back on My Feet in Time Square this past June. Back on My Feet helps individuals experiencing homelessness transform their lives through running. For anyone who knows me- this is LITERALLY the perfect marriage of my passions; combatting homelessness AND running- what could possibly be better? What's even better? The people I have met and the relationships I have formed.
These individuals are some of the strongest, most caring and most resilient people I have ever met. Team Time Square works specifically with Samaritan Village, a transitional housing program for Veterans experiencing homelessness and working towards a better life for themselves, one step and one mile at a time. So at 5:30am, 3X a week- they wake up, and rain or shine- they run. Men who have fought for my right to run!! How could I not run with them? How could I not be inspired by them? How could I not be there and run beside them for 26.2 miles in the TSC NYC Marathon??
In BoMF- there is one rule- NO ONE RUNS ALONE. By running in this years TSC NYC Marathon, I will make sure that no one is ever alone on the course. Please help me to support these INCREDIBLE individuals and show them how grateful we are for all of their sacrifices and that we believe in their ability to run and NEVER GIVE UP!! I am truly honored and humbled by the members of BoMF. I'll be with them every step of the way.
