BENEFITING: Back on My Feet
ORGANIZER: Back on My Feet
EVENT: Levi's Presidio 10
EVENT DATE: Apr 17, 2016
Working and running with Back on My Feet was an incredible experience while I lived in NYC. I learned a lot about myself and others and felt that my time spent with the program really had an impact on member's lives. After moving to the west coast, it was apparent that the Bay Area can greatly benefit from an organization like Back on My Feet and I believe that the program will be a success in San Francisco. I am grateful to be in a position where I can support Back on My Feet launch the SF chapter this fall. On April 17th, I will be running the Presidio 10K alongside the other members of the Young Professionals Board to support the organization’s launch financially. It would mean a lot to me if you could donate any amount you can toward the fundraiser to help support the launch. Cheers!
