THE STORY:

November 6 I will be finishing my first 42km / 26 miles also known as a marathon here in New York City going way beyond my 12km record only 2 months ago! 

I'm excited not only to push my own body and limitations but also to raise awareness and funds for a fantastic organisation I've gotten to know during the last months - Back on my Feet. I've spent some good time with them both running early mornings and meeting their management. 

My target is to help get 3 people off the streets and into a meaningful life by raising $5.000 from you and matching that myself reaching at least $10.000.

Back on my Feet in my words...

They help homeless people get back on their feet through running. 3 days a week members run at 5.30am showing commitment to the organisation and themselves that they want to get back on their feet. 1 month in with 90% attendence, and still running, they enter the programme that helps them in numerous ways back to a meaningful life. The organisation offers education, help getting a bank account, writing off debt, legal assistance etc.

It's a great community and positive energy at these ridiculiously early morning runs and you can feel the impact with the participants as they push through the miles.

What impact will donations have?

Well, it turns out that it costs about $3.000 to get one person off the street and into a job and home which I personally find efficient! Now this is only possible because of all the hard work of volunteers and corporate sponsors etc. so there's good leverage in how much money we end up raising.

I will personally match your donation if target is reached!

If we hit the target of $5.000 I will personally match that DOUBLING the total donations! This means we will get at least 3 people off the streets and into a meaningful life.

So, click the donate button and get going!
