BENEFITING: Back on My Feet
ORGANIZER: Back on My Feet
EVENT DATE: Nov 01, 2015
My name is Carley and I am running the 2015 TCS NYC Marathon.
I have never run a full marathon before. I have also never been left to survive on the streets. I have never lived in a shelter. I have however, experienced homelessness and struggles with alcoholism and addiction. I know what its like to wake up and not know where I am going to fall asleep that night.
My goal is to not only raise money, but raise more awareness to the homeless community of our great nation. That these human beings can be given a second chance to live a better and more fulfilled life. A life with purpose. A life with meaning. A reason to wake up in the morning and give that day everything you have.
When I cross that finish line on November 1st, god willing, I myself will have over 3 years of sobriety. The people at Back On My Feet give these people who are struggling to survive another chance at a life they never knew they could live and I want nothing more than to be apart of this organization. I know what its like to have hope lost. But I also know what its like to have hope restored.
Running has changed my life dramatically and I know that if it has changed MY life, it can help change someone else's life as well. So please help me, help Back On My Feet. You will be supporting an amazing foundation filled with undoubtedly astounding members.
I ask you to donate as much as you can, whether that be $1 or $100. Anything will suffice.
Thank you in advance for helping save another life.
