BENEFITING: Back on My Feet
ORGANIZER: Back on My Feet
EVENT DATE: Mar 20, 2016
Back on My Feet uses running to help individuals experiencing homelessness change the way they see themselves so that they can make real changes resulting in employment and independent living. We are racing in the 2016 United Airlines NYC Half Marathon to raise critical funds and awareness for our Members transitioning out of homelessness and into self-sufficiency.
Running has impacted my life in countless ways over the years. It's given me many things, including a way to destress and think through life's challenges, a connection to a wonderful community and some of my closest friends, and is my favorite way to explore the world I live in. Running can mean something different to everyone, and each week it is inspiring to see how running with Back on My Feet is impacting the lives of each Team Member.
