BENEFITING: Back on My Feet
ORGANIZER: Back on My Feet
EVENT DATE: Nov 06, 2016
I am excited and equally nervous to be running the NYC 2016 Marathon this year. It will be my first marathon. Yes - the first! After all these years of being completely inspired by my BoMF teammates, I will be taking on this challenge.
This organization is one of the most meaningful experiences I have ever been a part of. I have been running with BoMF for over 3 years. As a team we meet up at 5:30 in the morning and run throughout NYC spreading miles and "Good Mornings" :)
BoMF is a start-up with a unique approach to combat homelessness, uniting the power of running and community support, to motivate and empower individuals to independence. It works. Since coming to NYC 4 years ago, 124 members have obtained housing and 163 have gained employment. And hundreds more have run and finished races, including the NYC Marathon!
I am so grateful to be apart of this community. It has truly been transformative experience for me. I hope you will join me and support this amazing organization and their mission. Thank you for your contribution.
