Long Beach Half-Marathon!

BENEFITING: Back on My Feet
ORGANIZER: Back on My Feet
EVENT DATE: Nov 06, 2016
I am excited to run in the 2016 New York City Marathon on November 6th, 2016 in an effort to raise money for Back on My Feet. BoMF is a national non-profit organization that combats homelessness with running, community support, and essential employment and housing resources.
I began my involvement with BoMF as a volunteer in 2015 and now one of the leaders of Team URM in Downtown LA's notorious Skid Row. We "circle up" and run 3 mornings a week at 5:30am with an additional Sunday morning run during marathon season. I am also proud to serve as a member of the Advisory Board for BoMF Greater Los Angeles.
It has been a wonderful opportunity to share experiences with some inspiring people and form some great relationships through BoMF. I've witnessed lives changed day after day, run after run. I look forward to continuing my training alongside my teammates who themselves are striving to reach their own goals and training for a local marathon.
Please consider donating generously to BoMF to help empower people as they take on life's challenges as they transition out of homelessness. Thank You!
