Friends and Family,
It is estimated half a million homeless live within the United States. This would be the same as one of every three people who reside in Manhattan or more than half of everyone who lives in Austin. Back on My Feet, is a non-profit organization designed to combat the homeless epidemic one step at a time. Here is how:
Back on My Feet recruits members at homeless facilities around the country to participate in the organization. The participants who “stride” to fight the burden of homelessness are given a chance to change their lives. The recruits are required to make a commitment to run three days a week at the peak of dawn for 30 days. Designed to build a track record of hard work, commitment, and discipline.
After a month of hard work and proven dedication the members are invited into the second phase of the program called Next Steps. This step of the process is where the runner catches stride and is given educational support, job training programs, employment partnerships referral, and housing resources.
Since the start of the organization: 1,706 sprinters accomplished training and education, 2,378 runners have been employed, and 1,608 champions have been successfully housed. Serving over 6,000 world class athletes.
Let’s make a difference in the world and donate to this remarkable organization. We can change the lives for those who are determined to break their PR. Please help me raise funds to fight the challenge to end homelessness.
Just Do It,
