BENEFITING: Back on My Feet
ORGANIZER: Back on My Feet
EVENT DATE: Nov 06, 2016
I’m excited to be running the 2016 New York City Marathon while raising money for Back on My Feet: an organization that engages currently homeless individuals in a running routine, and -- in turn -- into routines that help them establish housing and employment. As a runner, I know how much running (or any activity we do with passion, while striving to improve our skills and accomplish our goals) can bring focus and inspiration to other aspects of our lives. Running also brings us together; the experience is as much about the miles logged and the PRs earned as it is about our running teammates, partners, coaches, and the people we run by every morning on our usual routes.
This will be my 7th NYC Marathon. I feel lucky to have the chance to get out there again, run through the 5 boroughs, and contribute to a meaningful cause that serves the needs of my favorite city and many other communities across the country. I hope you can support me -- with a few dollars to help me meet my goal of $3000 for Back on My Feet, and a cheer (virtual or otherwise). Thank you… from the bottom of MY FEET!!!!
Back on My Feet helps individuals experiencing homelessness transform their lives through running. And together, mile by mile, we can make a difference. Thanks for your support! http://nyc.backonmyfeet.org/mission-vision
