BENEFITING: Back on My Feet
ORGANIZER: Back on My Feet
EVENT DATE: Nov 06, 2016
Hello Family and Friends!
I am truly honored and humbled to have the opportunity to run in the 2016 TCS New York City Marathon for such an incredible organization, Back on My Feet. As many of you know, I manage a hotel in Denver, Colorado for White Lodging and they happen to be a huge supporter for Back on My Feet, which is where this story begins.
Back on My Feet is an organization that helps raise awareness and funds to make a difference in the lives of individuals and families experiencing or about to experience homelessness through running. You may learn more about the organization here: http://nyc.backonmyfeet.org/
Ask a runner why they run and you'll get a lot of different answers. "To lose weight," "to feel better," "because I enjoy it." The organization I am choosing to run for gives individuals an even bigger motive to run - "to get my life back on track and recover from being homeless." By helping me raise funds for Back on My Feet, you will be helping individuals in New York City become better people, and quite literally putting them back on their feet in this beautiful thing we call life.
I thank you in advance for helping me raise funds for Back on My Feet and please do not hesitate to ask any questions!
