EVENT DATE: Nov 06, 2016
FUNDRACER: MAUREEN LYNCH
Friends! This coming November, I will be lacing up to run my second 26.2 at the TCS NYC Marathon. This time, I will be running for something much bigger than myself and so near to my heart. I will be joining the NYC's Back on My Feet team- a national organization that uses a running-based model to combat homelessness in major cities from coast to coast.
Through the power of running, community support, and essential employment and housing resourc...es, BoMF is embracing individuals experiencing homelessness and empowering them to achieve self sufficiency. "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. For all in need, we aim to provide: practical training and employment resources for achieving independence; an environment that promotes accountability; and a community that offers compassion and hope."
My goal is to raise $300 for BoMF before I line up to run (alongside inspiring and amazing BoMF members!) on Nov 6! Please consider donating a few dollars to this awesome organization that is helping individuals experiencing homelessness achieve the impossible- through the seemingly simple act of putting one foot in front of the other. Or get out and run with Back on My Feet in your city!!
Thanks and LOVE and running,
