EVENT DATE: Nov 06, 2016

THE STORY:

Living and working in the heart of Santa Maria California, I have become very aware of the local homless situation. I have always wanted to help however I have felt helpless on my own. What can one person do? How can one person have a positive impact on such a large social issue? 

This week on a trip to New York, I found a solution. I have discovered a group of people who have the experience and the resourses to make a difference. The group is a national non-profit organization called Back on My Feet.

Back on My Feet seeks to revolutionize the way our society approaches homelessness. Their unique running-based model demonstrates that if you first restore confidence, strength and self-esteem, individuals are better equipped to tackle the road ahead and move toward jobs, homes and new lives.

I have agreed to support Back on My Feet by participating in a running fundraiser. This November, I will represent the California Central Coast at the New York City Marathon as I raise funds and run with the homless members of the BoMF organization. 

I am not asking you to fund my trip to New York. I will pay all of my travel expense. I am asking you to help me create awarness and make a contribution. 

Please take a couple of minutes and donate to this great organization. No gift is too small or too large. 

Thanks for your continued trust and support.
