BENEFITING: Back on My Feet
EVENT DATE: Nov 04, 2012
A decade ago I set out on a mission to run the prestigious NYC Marathon. Injuries, life and unfortunate lottery results have gotten in my way. This is the year I will accomplish the goal that I have been chasing for a very, very long time and I cannot wait to cross the finish line.
While my efforts will come and go in a matter of months, and I'll be standing with a medal and a smile at the end of the day, there are a number of amazing organizations that have spent years trying to achieve their missions, and they will continue to do so long after the marathon has ended.
Back on My Feet is is a nonprofit organization that promotes the self-sufficiency of people experiencing homelessness by engaging them in running as a means to build confidence, strength and self-esteem.
Back on My Feet does not provide food nor does it provide shelter, but instead provides a community that embraces equality, respect, discipline, teamwork and leadership. There are no labels, no stigmas and no stereotypes. At Back on My Feet, all members – regardless of race, education or socioeconomic status – join together to move their own lives forward as well as the lives of their teammates.
Please consider donating to this great nonprofit to help them achieve their goals.
